Overview

It's Christmas Day and Morris is missing. He was there to open his present-a teddy bear-and to watch his older sisters and brother open their gifts. His siblings went off to play with each other's new toys, but nobody wanted to play with Morris's bear. So Morris found something new to play with-a disappearing bag. He jumped right in and became invisible! Now he has something everybody wants to try. But they have to find him first. This warm and humorous story proves that sometimes the littlest bunny gets the last laugh.

H "Irresistible . . . The author-artist does some wonderful things with Morris's ears and eyes, expressing exactly the sentiments of a put-out preschool rabbit." (Booklist, starred review)

Everyone in Morris's family is pleased with his Christmas present except Morris.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
Morris's brother Victor receives a hockey outfit for Christmas and his sisters Rose and Betty get a beauty kit and chemistry set, respectively. Then they all play with one another's gifts. All except for Morris. He's too young, say his siblings. He would get hurt, blow up the house, and waste the lipstick. But when Morris opens the last present, he discovers-a disappearing bag! And Victor, Rose, and Betty are so busy playing with it that Morris is left to enjoy the hockey outfit, the chemistry set, and the beauty kit! Wells has written and illustrated Morris's Disappearing Bag with her characteristic warm sense of humor. Her rhythmical sentence structure, surprise ending, and expressive characters will entrance readers of all ages.

    opens up some lively discussions with youngsters

    The illustrations express the character's emotions so subtlely that I think children "read" this story as much from the illustrations as from the wonderful text. This book gets read again and again in our home.

    Great gift for children, we read it year 'round

    Rosemary Wells has written some wonderful books, and this is among my favorite. The author known for her characters Max and Ruby this time draws a family of six where the youngest bunny gets left out. But he uses his imagination (or is it real?) and manages to have the best Christmas ever, in spite of his dismissive siblings. Kids love this tale of a child working his magical way out of the dilemma of being too young and left out.
