Since Rabbit has big ears and wears glasses, it stands to reason that he can hear and see very well. Two new, witty lift-the-flap books chronicle exactly what the beguiling bunny encounters with his senses. Thick black letters spell out a question on each spread--``What can Rabbit see in the pond?''--while the illustrations provide graphic hints as to the answer found beneath the page's movable flap. Toddlers will delight in Cousins's ( Maisy Goes Swimming ) straightforward, naive paintings that depict the simplest scenes and shapes. Rabbit's expressive, bespectacled eyes and inquisitive body language help sustain a non-threatening air of suspense that will last through many readings. Ages 2-up. (Sept.)
