Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A companion to Astro Bunnies and Cowboy Bunnies, Scuba Bunnies by Christine Loomis, illus. by Ora Eitan, suggests that bathtime is the perfect time for an undersea excursion. The bunnies "Poke and peek in secret places/ Peering into fishy places," while visiting pirate ships, avoiding sharks and making other aquatic acquaintances. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Scuba bunnies, bold and brave, sink beneath the rolling waves in this simple, endearing tale of little bunnies who venture from their bathtub, to the ocean full of dangers and delights, and finally back home again into Mama Bunny's arms, warm towels and bedtime snacks. Told in a style reminiscent of Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny, this story is child friendly and will be easy for parents to read over and over. The illustrations use the same bright and vivid pallet Clement Hurd chose for Brown's books, and although simple they offer plenty of color, detail and patterns to keep little minds busy. The text is in a gentle rhythmic rhyme perfectly suited to rocking chairs. Although the book is written for younger audiences, early elementary-age children will also find much to love. Loomis is also the author of Astro Bunnies and Cowboy Bunnies, published by G.P. Putnam's Sons. 2004, GP Putnam's Sons/Penguin Young Readers Group, Ages 1 to 7.

Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-After a bath, "Scuba bunnies/Long to see/What's beneath/The deep blue sea." Donning wet suits and snorkels, the rabbits dive into a gentle, imaginative adventure. "Across the waves upon the tide," they encounter sharks, dolphins, whales, otters, and a sunken pirate ship. Upon their safe return home, their mamas welcome them back with hugs and tuck them into bed. As in Cowboy Bunnies (1997) and Astro Bunnies (2001, both Putnam), the story is told in rhyming couplets, perfect for reading aloud. Eitan's mixed-media illustrations include computer manipulation. The orange "fishy faces" blowing bubbles seem to leap off the page and, as the creatures backstroke home, the swirling background adds dramatic flair. Shared at bedtime, this title is sure to make a splash and to inspire many dreams.-Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
