Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is the Spanish translation of the classic, well loved, book, The Runaway Bunny. Every time the little bunny tells his mother he is going to run away, she says she will always find him. He says he will turn into a trout and swim away from her in a stream. She tells him that if he turns into a trout and swims away, she will become a fisherman and catch him. And so it goes until finally the little bunny says he will stay where he is, at home with his mother. Clement Hurd's illustrations help transport children into the imagination of the little bunny. The sketches on the pages with the dialogue between the little bunny and his mother as well as the beautiful, bold illustrations in between the text, tell the story so well without words. The one that most symbolizes the mother's love shows the little bunny changed into a bird flying toward a tree, which is shaped like its mother with her arms stretched out to greet and protect him. The repetitious phrases help early readers feel confident as they read on their own. 2006 (orig.1995), HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 3 to 6.

Meet the Author

Margaret Wise Brown

Few writers have been as attuned to the concerns and emotions of childhood as Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952). A graduate of Hollins College and the progressive Bank Street College of Education, she combined her literary aspirations with the study of child development. Her unique ability to see the world through a child's eyes is unequaled. Her many classic books continue to delight thousands of young listeners and readers year after year.

Muy pocos escritores de literatura infantil han logrado captar las emociones e inquietudes de la niñez como Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952). Sus numerosos y ya clásicos libros y grabaciones continúan deleitando a lectores y oyentes de todas las edades.

Clement Hurd (1908–1988) is best known for illustrating Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny, the classic picture books by Margaret Wise Brown. He studied painting in Paris with Fernand Léger and others in the early 1930s. After his return to the United States in 1935, he began to work in children's books. He illustrated more than one hundred books, many of them with his wife, Edith Thacher Hurd, including the Johnny Lion books, The Day the Sun Danced, and The Merry Chase. A native of New York City, he lived most of his life in Vermont and California.
