Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
The extra attraction in this endearing book for young children is a paper engineering trick called changing-pictures. The mere act of opening the book's front cover causes a single brown bunny to turn into a picture of a baby bunny and its mother. This form of paper engineering is also called a transformation or parallel pictures; and it is produced by cutting slits in two pictures, one on top of the other, and arranged so they can pass across each other smoothly when a tab is pulled. The tab can be as large as the front cover itself or it can be a small flap to lift, as on the inside pages. This book has been designed with light cardboard pages that will accommodate the hearty pulls of very young children for whom the book is intended. Little Bunny and his friends: a little squirrel; Freddie, a fox cub; a burrow full of dormice; Daisy, an infant deer; and their friend Olive, a white owl, are all out after dark, and the wise owl Olive kindly advises them that it is not safe for them to be out at night. The pictures of all the young animals are soft and friendly and it will be up to someone in another book to tell the little mice, squirrels and bunnies to stay away from foxes and owls. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich
Kirkus Reviews

Soft-focus illustrations in acrylic and colored pencil introduce Little Bunny as he and his young animal friends play at night in the forest. Little Bunny learns that the dark is not something scary but instead presents opportunities to dig in the dirt with Freddie the fox and play in the moonlight with a family of dormice. A friendly owl named Olive reminds Little Bunny that it isn't really safe for little rabbits to be out alone at night, and she leads him back to his burrow, where his parents are waiting for him. The plodding story is rather old-fashioned and definitely of the forest-fairy-tale subgenre, as predator and prey play together as friends, and the owl warns the bunny and leads him home rather than having him for dinner. The book's raison d'être is its changing-picture format, used for the cover illustration and for three spreads inside. The circular changing-picture inserts cleverly shift to a new picture by lifting a tree-shaped insert at the right-hand side of the page. Toddlers and younger preschoolers will be fascinated by this quick-change effect within the page, as the bunny and the squirrel transform into a fox, or the bunny and his mother change into the rabbit family asleep in their cozy burrow. Sweet but far from essential. (Picture book. 2-5)
