Description

Rabbit is afraid of many things, but most of all he's afraid of gigantic, monstery, BEARS! The very nervous Rabbit is soon confronted by his worst fear who appears to be far more interested in making new friends than causing Rabbit any real harm. Despite his apprehension, Rabbit agrees to join his jovial new acquaintance for dinner, but wait a minute . . . is Bear planning to "have" Rabbit for dinner? In this tender story about a very nervous rabbit and a lovable bear, Rabbit discovers that things aren't always as scary as they seem, and sometimes you may just have more in common with others than you think.

"Tara J. Hannon's whimsical, fun, colorful drawings enhance a fine picture book story highly recommended for either independent pursuit by ages 4-7, or read-aloud pleasure." -- D. Donovan, Sr. Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"This adventure offers an effective brain exercise in graphic storytelling for young readers. . ." -- Kirkus Reviews

Review quote

"Rabbit is timid about most things in life, but he's most afraid of bears. They are big, scary, violent creatures, and there are many warnings about encountering one. But, nothing can prepare him for the reality of encountering one in the woods, and for the very different circumstances that challenge everything he believes. As Rabbit gets to know one real Bear, he discovers the roots of prejudice and changes his mind about generalizations."

"These excellent revelations encourage kids to face their fears and think about not just the reality of danger, but different personalities and choices involved in interacting with the world with notions that don't stem from personal experience. Tara J. Hannon's whimsical, fun, colorful drawings enhance a fine picture book story highly recommended for either independent pursuit by ages 4-7, or read-aloud pleasure."

-- D. Donovan, Sr. Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"A bespectacled rabbit gets over his fear of bears and finds a new friend in this picture book. . . . Young readers may be familiar with the theme of appearances being deceiving and frightening-looking creatures turning out to be benevolent. But Lukidis' (A Real Live Pet!, 2018, etc.) clever framework that allows Rabbit a moment to be a hero, despite his trepidation, is a nice touch. The story, which features an all-male cast, is told in approachable vocabulary. . . . This adventure offers an effective brain exercise in graphic storytelling for young readers. . ."
