Booklist Review

Ages 5^-8. Gibbons introduces rabbits in a large, square-format volume, brightly illustrated in her signature style. The text puts together a variety of facts on the history, types, physical traits, habits, senses, and development of wild rabbits, but there is no real connective discourse. Also included are instructions on caring for pet rabbits. Two pages of captioned drawings indicate the differences between rabbits and hares. Colored washes and crayon shading enliven the clearly delineated ink drawings, though in some cases the rabbits have a stuffed-toy look about them. Although this is not Gibbons' strongest work, it wil be an automatic purchase for many libraries, given the appeal of the subject and the author-illustrator. Carolyn Phelan


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3-Gibbons supplies some history and background before expounding on leporid-family characteristics, habitats, reproduction, and different breeds. She compares hares to rabbits and explains the difference between wild and domesticated. Three pages explain how to care for a pet rabbit and one page is dedicated to rabbit trivia and lore. The watercolor-and-ink illustrations have a sketchbook quality, and it is sometimes difficult to differentiate among many of the breeds mentioned. These pictures are not as sharp and clean as those found in the artist's previous books. Nevertheless, this title is a good read-aloud that will appeal to independent readers as well.-Jill O'Farrell, Tatum Primary School, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
