Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Everyone's favorite long-eared toddler becomes the perfect board book star with this edition of Little Rabbit Lost by Harry Horse. In a starred review, PW wrote, "Horse's visual depiction of Little Rabbit is dead-on. The gentle lesson-that even `big' boys and girls can get separated from their parents-ends on an uplifting note, with a `great big hug,' a message both grownups and kids will take to heart."

When do we stop being little and become big? That is a hard question, and sometimes we think we know the answer before we actually do. Little Rabbit was celebrating his birthday and one of his presents was tickets to Rabbit World, a wonderful amusement park. The only problem was that his mother kept telling him he was too little to go on all the most interesting rides. It was just too annoying for a big rabbit like himself to be treated like a baby, he thought. So he paid little attention to where his mama was until he found that he had lost her. Suddenly, Little Rabbit felt little again and afraid. With simple language that every little person will understand and can identify with, the author tells that familiar story of a lost child. He also reminds us not too be in too much of a hurry to be a "big rabbit." Harry Horse's illustrations delight the eye with their detail, and several double-page spreads could keep the reader occupied for some time, exploring his fascinating rabbit world. A gem of a book, readers might also enjoy the author's other books which include The Last Polar Bears and The Last Gold Diggers. 2002, Peachtree Publishers,

PreS-Gr 2-Little Rabbit is thrilled that his family is taking him to "Rabbit World" for his birthday, for he has always wanted to go there and it's a sure sign that "I'm a big rabbit now." Despite his parents' admonitions to stay close, he is off and running, always out in front with his big red balloon, and it's all his mother can do to keep him in sight. Finally, after becoming bored watching his older siblings ride the Big Hopper roller coaster that he's too small for, he wanders off to the bouncy castle and is having fun until he realizes that his mother is nowhere in sight. Suddenly, feeling "as small as he really was," he tries to find her. He's on the verge of panic, when the balloon helps to reunite them, and the whole family celebrates with a big birthday picnic, complete with cake. Little Rabbit, with his tiny blue suit and big red balloon, is an endearing figure who will win the sympathy of many young listeners who feel really big one minute and small the next. This cautionary tale has a deft and light touch, with soft, watercolor illustrations that portray a cozy rabbit home; an inviting theme park; and a small, but intrepid, protagonist.-Jane Marino, Scarsdale Public Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
