The Rabbits Are Coming!
Bunnies are bouncing all over the countryside in a seemingly endless line, each holding a balloon. As the rambunctious rabbits hop down a country lane and into a cozy house, they raise a ruckus everywhere--they interrupt father's baking and completely take over poor Grandpa's tub. As twilight falls, the bunnies leave the bemused family and are transported via their balloons over a tranquil lake to their tree trunk home, where they soon fall fast asleep. Told entirely through pictures, this carefree jaunt features enticing, sublimely sweet pictures that draw the reader into the journey. Rendered in pastel watercolors, scenery glides dreamily by as one droll scene follows another in Bullock's ( It Chanced to Rain ; A Surprise for Mitzi Mouse ) thoroughly diverting outing. Ages 3-6.
