Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
"It is difficult to believe that this very modern feminist tale was originally written in 1939. A gem of a fantasy in which kindness and cleverness win out over size and brawn."
Children's Literature
The busy mother of 21 babies is chosen by Old Grandfather Bunny to be his fifth Easter rabbit but is injured while delivering a special egg to a very sick child. Through its timeless tale of perseverance, kindness, and courage The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes, first published 61 years ago, continues to touch readers of all ages today. Marjorie Flack's expressive illustrations are a lovely accompaniment to DuBose Heyward's classic text. 1974 (orig. 1939), Houghton Mifflin. Ages All. Reviewer: Mary Quattlebaum
