Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Eddie has a plan for his under-the-weather friend, whose mother has instructed him to stay in bed while she and the rest of the Rabbit family visit Grandma. Eddie joins forces with his cousin Kiki and they become Davy's nurses as he spends the day recovering in his own inimitable way. Recalling Mother's warning, the caregivers drag Davy's bed outdoors. Leave it to Eddie and Kiki to devise a plan full of fresh air and big fun. This rollicking, rambunctious rabbit tale, with comical illustrations in warm earth tones, will tickle children."
Children's Literature
Brigitte Weninger's "Davy" series has enchanted readers for several years, and this title continues that legacy. In this story, a little rabbit stays in bed, looked after by his best friends, Eddie and Kiki. Mother Rabbit makes the boys promise that Davy will remain in bed before taking the rest of the family to visit Grandma's for the day. How will they have fun when Davy has to remain in bed? The rabbit friends take Davy on a fun expedition through fresh air and an imaginative landscape. The three friends come up with creative ways to make sure that Davy has fun by carrying him, bed and all, to the locations of adventure. The three friends become pirates on an afternoon expedition that ends abruptly when Davy realizes his family is about to return home. Eve Tharlet's enchanting pictures leap off the page and into the imagination of readers, perfectly complementing a story that young readers will take to heart for many years to come. 2006, North-South Books, Ages 3 to 6.
