Overview


Rabbit goes wherever Kara goes—sometimes to Mama’s house, sometimes to Papa’s house. Now Papa is coming to pick up Kara and Rabbit and take them to his house. But this time things are different. Peggy, Papa’s new wife, lives there, too. She makes costumes for people who act in plays, and the house is full of her things.

When Kara and Rabbit try to lie on the couch where she and Papa snuggle to tell each other stories, they can’t—because it’s hidden under mountains of gloves. When they try to sit in the special chair Papa made for them, they can’t—because it’s covered in capes. It’s even hard to find a hiding place for hide-and-seek! How can Kara and Rabbit make sure there’s enough room for them?

The beloved characters from Missing Rabbit are back in a brand-new story that offers comfort to children and stepparents.

Papa picks up Kara and her stuffed bunny from Mama's house for her first visit since Papa's new wife, Peggy, has moved in, in the sequel to Missing Rabbit, Room for Rabbit by Roni Schotter, illus. by Cyd Moore. The illustrations capture the affection Papa and Peggy share while simultaneously conveying Kara's dismay at the changes since Peggy's arrival.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-In this delightful follow-up to Missing Rabbit (Clarion, 2002), Schotter again explores issues related to divorce and remarriage. Taking her favorite toy with her, Kara goes to visit with her father and his new wife. But Papa's house is now cluttered with Peggy's things, and the child worries that there's no longer room for her. After she tells her father that Rabbit thinks the house is too crowded, he and Peggy make more space for Kara and her stuffed animal. The story walks the line between narrative and bibliotherapy with relative ease, aided by Moore's warm, cartoonlike watercolors. Kara and her parents, biological and step, are portrayed as a loving family, and children will find this tale reassuring.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
