Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Suki, a young white rabbit with a gray spot over her right eye, splashes in mud puddles and shouts about the tastiness of dandelion greens. Her fellow rabbits watch her with concern, and her mother warns, "Suki, we mustn't call attention to ourselves.... We're bunnies." Suki does not take well to discipline, and she pooh-poohs her more cautious brother's advice to "stay in the burrows." Defying everyone, she takes a solo adventure across a field, encountering perils that recall those faced by the independent duckling in The Story About Ping. The D'Amicos (Ella the Elegant Elephant) picture Suki's woodland habitat with leafy bowers and birches, toadstools, and butterflies. Steven D'Amico draws the white bunnies (not your typical brown forest residents) with pink ears and paw pads, using the curvy lines and gumdrop smoothness of conventional animation. Readers will know how Suki feels when she is teased for yelling unnecessarily, but this is not a story advocating silence. Suki lands in a threatening situation where she must call for help, demonstrating the advantages of a loud voice and underlining school and home safety lessons. Ages 3–5. (Jan.)
Kirkus Reviews
Suki's mother works hard to raise a proper, well-behaved bunny that speaks softly and follows the rules. But boisterous Suki likes jumping in mud puddles, trying to fly like a butterfly and playing outside the boundaries of the rabbit burrow. Most of all, Suki likes speaking in a VERY BIG VOICE, denoted in the text with capital letters and in the illustrations with huge letters stretching across the sky. When Suki takes off on a rambling adventure through puddles, in and out of a trap and into a slightly scary woods as the sun is setting, her big voice proves to be an advantage in calling her mother for help in finding her way back home. Suki is an adventurous character with a personality all her own, seamlessly conveyed in both text and art. The illustrations depict her gleeful minor misbehavior and shifting emotions with excellent variety in perspective and setting, and the text is thoughtfully integrated into the art, sometimes in white text against dark backgrounds. As the dramatic tension increases when Suki wanders, lost, at sunset, the backgrounds subtly shift to warm oranges and glowing reds, highlighting the satisfying reunion of mother and child. It's nice to see a book in which a girl finds that having her own powerful voice is a positive and valuable trait. (Picture book. 3-6)
