Bestselling author Rosemary Wells tells a heartfelt holiday story The Chicago Tribune calls “One of the best.”

It’s Christmas day and Morris is missing. He was there to open his present—a teddy bear—and to watch his older sisters and brother open their gifts. His siblings went off to play with each other’s new toys, but nobody wanted to play with Morris’s bear. So Morris found something new to play with—a disappearing bag. He jumped right in and became invisible! Now he has something everybody wants to try. But they have to find him first. This warm and humorous story proves that sometimes the littlest bunny gets the last laugh.

* “Irresistible . . . The author-artist does some wonderful things with Morris’s cars and eyes, expressing exactly the sentiments of a put-out preschool rabbit.”—Booklist, starred review

This book is about Morris and his Christmas gifts. All his other siblings had gifts that they played with all day and Morris had a teddy bear that no one wanted to play with. He was sad, but then he found a gift under the tree that had been overlooked. He opened it and it was a disappearing bag. He family found it fascinating and was then willing to exchange their gifts to play with the disappearing bag.

The illustrations express the character's emotions so subtlely that I think children "read" this story as much from the illustrations as from the wonderful text. This book gets read again and again in our home.

Rosemary Wells has written some wonderful books, and this is among my favorite. The author known for her characters Max and Ruby this time draws a family of six where the youngest bunny gets left out. But he uses his imagination (or is it real?) and manages to have the best Christmas ever, in spite of his dismissive siblings. Kids love this tale of a child working his magical way out of the dilemma of being too young and left out.
