Summary

Summary

Can three hungry rabbits eat an entire garden full of mouthwatering vegetables and not get caught? They'll do their best, but one thing stands in their way: the diligent young gardener who doesn't want to share her tasty lettuce, cucumbers, and carrots. She'll only let the rabbits stay if they eat all the vegetables she doesn't like.

But who wants smelly leeks, puny parsnips, and tough old turnips? Not these rabbits!

Booklist Review

PreS-Gr. 1. When it comes to vegetables, rabbits can be as finicky as kids. The three long-eared critters here are on a stealth mission in search of carrots, creeping under the cucumbers and burrowing through the green beans. A very annoyed gardener catches them red-handed and offers less desirable crops as a compromise. But the trio refuses her rutabagas and turns down her turnips. Clear, at last, on what the rabbits are after, the softhearted gardener complies, offering a tasty pile of sweet, crunchy carrots. No rabbit could ask for more. The lilting, rhyming text brings to mind Peters' This Way Home0 (1994) as well as Denise Fleming's In the Tall, Tall Grass 0 (1991), and Mack's pictures, in thickly applied brush strokes, perfectly capture the story's rough-and-tumble action and its playful tone. The picture of the three brown rabbits lounging on their backs, legs crossed and munching radishes amidst rows of tasty lettuce leaves says it all. --Terry Glover Copyright 2004 Booklist
