Big Bad Bunny
By Franny Billingsley
Stars: 4 out of 5
A patron came to check out a stack of picture books including this one. I mentioned that it was really cute and she said, “Oh, good! I didn’t read it all the way through and was worried it was too scary.” I told her that the vicious-looking “bunny” (mouse in a bunny suit) can be a little scary at first, but about halfway through it turns REALLY cute.
That being said, I would save this one for a kid who’s not easily frightened, and/or one who’s going through the same emotions of wanting to grow up and be taken seriously.
Overall: REALLY cute, tiny bit scary.
