Rhyming Dust Bunnies

Jan Thomas, . . S&S/Atheneum, $12.99 (40pp) ISBN 978-1-4169-7976-0

“We rhyme all the time!” declares one of four googly-eyed dust bunnies, ebullient in their palette of bright solid colors and Smurf-like bodies. Three of the shaggy critters promptly strut their stuff, reeling off words that rhyme with “car.” But the fourth shouts, “Look!” Is he just a dimwit, or could he know something the others don’t? The silly, eager-to-please dust bunnies occupy most of the space on the square pages; the silliness, the scale and large dialogue balloons combine for a party-hearty mood. Although a little sketchier than Thomas’s previous works, such as What Will Fat Cat Sit On? , this book is just as funny and snappy-looking. Ages 3–5. (Jan.)
