Show and Tell Bunnies

Kathryn Lasky, Author, Marylin Hafner, Illustrator Candlewick Press (MA) $15.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-7636-0396-0
Clyde, the bunny first-grader who mastered the art of doing lunch in Lunch Bunnies, now has a new ordeal to face: Show and Tell. Nothing he owns, not his string collection nor his leaf album, will be even remotely interesting enough, according to Clyde's older brother. Lasky's premise is familiar, but she brings to it the same blend of humor, understanding and true-to-life emotions that characterized Clyde's previous outing. Packed with small, believable surprises, her plot takes an unexpected, imaginative path toward the triumphant ending. Hafner's watercolor-and-ink pictures effortlessly reinforce both the comforting message and the light tone with which it is conveyed. The illustrator fills both home and classroom settings with amusing details, such as the bunnies' snazzy outfits (Clyde's brother sports a cool plaid shirt and hiking boots; Clyde's female classmates accessorize with stylish headbands and bows tied onto their ears). A choice read-aloud for apprehensive schoolchildren. Ages 4-7. (Oct.)
