Chronicle Books, Ulf Nilsson, Eriksson E. Nilsson. Chronicle Books, $6.95 (0pp) ISBN 978-0-87701-610-6

In the first of these two additions to the Little Bunny series, the title character and Big Brother Rabbit go to the beach. She is blissful in the water--floating, playing and ignoring Big Brother, who has been watching over her. When she is left alone too long, Little Bunny realizes that she needs her older sibling, but manages to maintain her independent streak. In Little Bunny and the Hungry Fox , she wanders too far from home, and finds herself sniffed and peered at by a very hungry predator. The birds help Little Bunny out: ``Hop!'' they squawk. And she does, all the way home. Nilsson's Little Bunny is the ideal toddler, curious and inventive, learning about the sometimes frightening world around her. Eriksson infuses each scene with winsome humor; this is a series of books that continues to surprise, delight and charm. Ages 2-6. (May)
