Euclid Bunny Delivers the Mail

Bruce Koscielniak, Author Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers $13.95 (33p) ISBN 978-0-679-81069-8
Everyone at the Barnyard Post Office is down with the flu and no one is left to deliver the mail. Postmaster Bernie Bear calls the Euclid Bunny Speedy Delivery Service and, ``quick as a bunny,'' he arrives. Bernie explains the circuitous route to Euclid, who is anxious to be off. In his quest for speed, however, Euclid sacrifices efficiency. As a result, the moose receives a mouse-sized TV set, Roland Reindeer receives six tiny hats meant for ducklings and the cows receive a pint-sized tea set not at all suited to their large hooves. Faced with an irate Bernie, Euclid tears around ``bunny quick'' redistributing all the mail and, to everyone's satisfaction, gets things right this time. Koscielniak's ( Hector and Prudence ) breathless, lighthearted tale of post office mayhem contains many visual asides that are sure to amuse preschoolers. His frantic pictures never slacken; their high energy and zippy details seem to give them a life of their own. Ages 3-7. (Feb.)
