Booklist Review

Ages 4^-7. The endearing little bunny appearing in What Have You Done, Davy? [BKL Ap 15 96] is back for another adventure. This time, Davy runs away after his mother unjustly accuses him of breaking her china bowl. Of course, Mama goes after him, and Davy is vindicated when he learns his brother has confessed. The joyful reunion includes a full apology and a plea for forgiveness from Mama, and Davy follows suit by forgiving his brother for letting him take the blame. Soft watercolors depict the family's ups and downs, with wonderful facial expressions and body language telling the story every bit as effectively as the text. Parents don't always admit their mistakes, and siblings don't always forgive each other so readily, but what these characters say and do still has the ring of truth. --Lauren Peterson

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2‘Another runaway bunny story that succeeds because of the large, attractive pictures. When Mother Rabbit's china bowl is broken, young Davy is blamed. Unfairly accused, he decides to run away and vows not to return until he's big and strong. In spite of his desire to be brave, he is frightened by an owl. His family finds him, his older brother apologizes (he broke the bowl), and all is forgiven. The expressive watercolor-and-pencil illustrations successfully evoke feelings of being small and misunderstood. The double-page spread of the huge owl flying overhead underscores Davy's helplessness. The fairly predictable but reassuring story is resolved with truth and forgiveness. The large size of the book and the engaging pictures make this an appealing choice for group sharing.‘Janet M. Bair, Trumbull Library, CT (c) Copyright 2010.
