Overview

Rabbit lives alone. He cooks for himself, cleans up for himself, and at the end of the day, reads himself a story. It's a simple life, and he likes it. But one evening, Froggie shows up at his door. He wants to listen to Rabbit's story, too. While eating a snack-or three. While lounging on a pillow-or ten. And bringing over his family-dozens and dozens of frogs! Rabbit has finally had enough; Froggie will have to go! But when he sits down alone to read himself a story, Rabbit realizes something is missing: someone to listen; someone to share a wonderful story.
Keith Graves' boisterous, humor-filled artwork lends just the right touch to this multilayered tale that celebrates the joy of reading aloud.

This is an excellent example of Modern Fantasy because the frogs and the rabbit are given distinct human personalities and character traits and are able to express that in the English language. The lives of the characters are also placed within a "home" that is similar to that of a human being homes. The two main characters of the story are well developed, round, and overcome their difficulties. Asher does a good job in describing them to the readers. Level: Primary

Rabbit is someone who likes life "Just as it is" with no surprises. He does things the same way every evening, and likes his routine, especially reading his books o himself. Until one Stormy evening Froggie appears and changes up Rabbit's life and insists on making himself comfprtable to listen to Rabbit's stories! Too much Fuss! Too much Clutter! Too much....but Rabbit comes to realize after sending froggie and his family away one day, that he really enjoyed his new friend, and his new way of appreciating other things. It is a great book to learn acceptance, change and the differences inone another and still be friends.

I Loved this book and so did the classes that heard it as a read aloud. The illustrations by Keith Graves add so much to the story. Froggie is just a story loving guy who knows how to add zest to the situation. Rabbit is just a plain guy who knows how to live simply and is content with that until he meets Froggie. Elementary students readily recognize that Froggie did not ask permission...maybe older students and adults could use this same lesson. My clases were completely in love with this story and its illustrations.
