Overview


Smudge Bunny is the story of Smudge, Dr. Siegel’s beloved pet rabbit and her journey to reach their home and family. In recounting her story, Smudge comes to realize that sometimes the paths in life that look like detours, are really just different ways to get to where we were meant to be all along. After enduring heartache and loss, Smudge ultimately finds happiness, hope, and the discovery that a true home is where, as the poet Robert Frost wrote, "... when you go there they have to take you in." This story is written at a child’s level with warmth and playfulness, and of course, a happy ending. We believe that readers who enjoyed Dr. Siegel’s adult books, for their humor, love, and healing, will also want to share this charming book with their children. The book is a wonderful gift for animal lovers as well, because it teaches the true spirit of kinship between humans and our favorite furry companions.

When two little rabbits, sisters named Smudge and Snowflake, are taken from their barn and endure some difficult days, they still try to believe that "troubles can turn into blessings."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The author of Love, Medicine, & Miracles, Dr. Bernie Siegel has penned his first children's book, Smudge Bunny, illus. by Laura J. Bryant. Two bunnies, taken from their family to be sold at a pet store, suffer at the hands of unwittingly abusive owners and are briefly separated before being reunited by more loving adopters. The text-heavy tale brims with Momma Bunny's words of advice ("Something good will come of this," she tells her bunnies as they are being taken from their home), as well as plenty of information about the right and wrong ways to care for pets: "One little boy reached into the cage and picked Smudge up by the ears, making her cry." A list of further tips is included in the back. (Apr.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Six little bunnies live with their Momma in an old barn. One fateful morning, the farmer and his wife choose two—Smudge and Snowflake. "They make a cute pair. I'm sure the pet store will want them," says the farmer's wife and pops them into a box. The bunnies think this is a new game, but Momma knows better. "Don't be afraid," she whispers. "Remember, something good will come of this." At the pet store, Smudge and Snowflake are bought by a well-meaning couple who think the bunnies are the perfect gift for their granddaughter. Alas, neither the little girl nor her grandparents know how to care for house rabbits. When Smudge is carelessly lifted from her cage, she falls from the little girl's hands and accidentally scratches her. "You're a bad bunny," the girl says and her angry grandmother dumps the bunnies into the backyard and shoos them away. Poor Smudge and Snowflake! There is no one to take care of them; they are cold, hungry and scared. But Smudge reminds her sister that Momma said that sometimes troubles turn out to be blessings. And this time, Momma is right! Colorful, charming illustrations give the reader a rabbit's eye view of the journey of two little bunnies to their new and loving home. At the end of the book, readers will find a list of suggestions for caring for a house rabbit. A must read for anyone thinking of adopting, buying or giving a bunny as a gift. 2004, HJ Kramer/Starseed Press, Ages 4 to 8.
