Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Review in Library Journal, Feb. 1, 2008 (Circ.: 18,000)

“Johnson has been a rabbit owner and enthusiast most of her life, and her book is far more than a guide to keeping rabbits as pets. It provides an insight into the world of rabbit shows, breeding, and bunny behavior and even offers a brief history of rabbits. There are 47 different breeds of rabbits recognized by the American Rabbit Breeders Association, and there is an entry devoted to each breed, which details basic characteristics and includes color photos. Like dogs and cats, rabbits are exhibited at shows across the country, with the show season culminating in an annual national convention. While a search of Amazon.com reveals several titles on raising rabbits, this book is unique because of its thorough explanation of rabbit classification and showing. It is up to date and includes the newest recognized breed as well as three new breeds that are going through the process of becoming sanctioned. Practical and well organized, this concise volume should be essential reading for anyone interested in raising domestic rabbits. A worthwhile purchase for all public libraries”.
