Here Comes the Big, Mean Dust Bunny!

Jan Thomas, . . S&S/Beach Lane, $12.99 (40pp) ISBN 978-1-4169-9150-2

In this follow-up to Rhyming Dust Bunnies , the effervescent dust bunnies interact with the aptly named title character, who's gray, sharp-toothed, and very grumpy. When they invite him to rhyme a word with “fit,” he volunteers “sit” and flattens them. Next, the meanie takes a turn, demanding, “What rhymes with face?” (the apprehensive bunnies learn he has “chase” in mind). All is finally set right with a hug, and readers should find the dust bunnies as magnetic as ever. Ages 3–5. (Nov.)
