Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Opposites may attract, but they also prove to be humorous obstacles for a bunny couple and their mouse friend. When Bynum's (Altoona Baboona) winsome watercolor-and-ink drawings show the pair out dancing, for instance, the male bunny discovers that his mouse pal makes "too short" a partner, while the female bunny struggles with a "too tall" giraffe. In another spread, the bow tie-clad bunny goes entirely "too fast" on his roller skates to suit his sidekick, who nearly loses her purse and pearls, while he thinks her attempt to skate gingerly alongside a guardrail is "too slow." But each of Minters's (Cinder-Elly) comical encounters does resolve happily: the rabbits discover what is "just right" just by being together, whether it's swinging on the dance floor or skating away in an embrace, their diminutive buddy in tow. Ages 2-5. (Mar.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Here is a spirited concept book that will help little ones learn their opposites—big and small, short and tall, dark and bright, heavy and light, high and low, fast and slow, many and few. Two rabbits in action demonstrate the meaning of these words by trying out bicycles, dancing with different partners, sleeping in a tent at night, balancing on a teeter totter, roller blading and buying balloons. In each case, they sort through what is too this or too that until they discover what is just right—all in simple rhyme. The digital pen and ink and watercolor drawings are appealingly bright with interesting detail. A little mouse accompanies the pink and yellow rabbits on their many escapades, which end in a photo booth where funny snapshots are taken of the threesome. This is a gentle and entertaining nudge into the world of words as they relate to a child's experience of trying to get things just right. 2001, Harcourt, $13.00. Ages 2 to 5. Reviewer: Carol Raker Collins
School Library Journal
PreS-K-A clever concept book. Each double-page spread features rabbit friends in two different scenes, each one presenting an opposing situation whether it be trying out a bicycle ("Too big/Too small") or playground equipment (Too high/Too low) or roller-skating ("Too fast/Too slow"). Each of the spreads is followed by a picture of the perfect solution or compromise. The minimal, repetitive text will have listeners joining in and will offer beginning readers an opportunity to try their new skills. Bright and cheery digital pen-and-ink and watercolor pictures depict a male and female rabbit. (He's yellow and sports a bow tie, she's pink and carries a purse.) A small mouse also appears in each illustration, often providing a humorous touch. Like this friendly creature and the two rabbits, listeners will learn about opposites, and more importantly, about what friends do to make things "just right."-Karen Scott, Valley Intermediate School, Pelham, AL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A jaunty pair of bunnies embarks on an adventure exploring opposites. Like Goldilocks, the curious duo samples things that are at each extreme before discovering a happy medium. Minters's (Sleepless Beauty, 1996, etc.) spare text is composed of contrasting word pairs that cover familiar concepts for the very young: high/low, fast/slow, etc. The brief statements are woven together into simple rhymes, creating a singsong rhythm that is eminently suitable for read-aloud sessions. "Too dark / Too bright / Just right / Too heavy / Too light / Just right." Bynum's sparkling watercolors clearly convey the concepts expressed, featuring scenarios that toddler's can readily recognize; e.g., a trio of slides-one towering, one squat, and one bunny-height-illuminate the difference between high and low. The antonym pairs are accompanied by an individual illustration for each word and followed by a full-bleed, two-page spread depicting the duo engaged in activity that is "just right." The comical drawings of the nattily attired rabbit couple-he in a snazzy bow tie and she in pearls-and the addition of a small, purple mouse companion add to the whimsical charm of the illustrations. Not too long and not too complicated, this cheerful little picture book is just right. (Picture book. 2-5)
