Stories Rabbits Tell: A Natural and Cultural History of a Misunderstood Creature
Susan E. Davis, Margo Demello
1590560442
August 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
"Most people approach rabbits as if they were stuffed animals: cute, but not capable of much except, maybe, eating carrots and twitching their noses," note Davis (writer and rabbit owner) and DeMello (president of the House Rabbit Society), who present quite a different picture: rabbits (and hares) are complex, social creatures intertwined with human culture. To date, no book has so closely examined the behavior and place of the rabbit-as pet, prey, pest and mythic figure-in history. As the only animal Westerners use as both pet and meat, the rabbit reflects some of our most unsettling cultural contradictions. Part literary companion, with analyses of rabbits in art and literature from poet William Cowper to Beatrix Potter, and part clear-eyed review of facts on rabbit "industry" and rabbit biology, this volume...

Book Review
Baby and Bunny pop bubbles, look at books, wear beads, and chase each other through pretty fields and purple gardens. With its soft yellows, violets, and greens, this delicately decorated story about friendship lost and found unfolds in fewer than five words per page. "Baby touches Bunny's nose." "Bunny chases a ball." All goes well, everyone's getting along swimmingly... until "Bunny hops away." Will Baby find Bunny? Only time and a few lovely pages will tell. The mother-daughter team of Adele Aron Greenspun and Joanie Schwarz has created a simple, sweet tale with few words and soft photographs of a sweater-clad baby and a droopy-eared bunny--both real, both adorable. Each picture is elaborately framed with hazy, dreamlike backgrounds of rolling meadows and distant woodlands. There's not much of a story here, but it won't...

Bunnicula Strikes Again!
James Howe
0689814623
June 1, 2001
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
The Monroe animals prove themselves up to scratch in this sublimely silly Bunnicula caper (following Return to Howliday Inn). Newcomers will quickly catch on to the series' premise: Chester the cat has persuaded Harold, the mutt narrator cum author, and Howie, the dachshund puppy, that the Monroe boys' pet rabbit is really a vampire-just look at the way he drains vegetables of their juices. As this installment begins, Harold believes the household safe, and so he is unnerved by Chester's cryptic comment, "Let's just say the matter is under control.... At last." As usual with the Bunnicula books, the plot is less important than Howe's contagious amusement in telling his story. The tone drolly combines high diction and animal nature (e.g., in a note to "his" editor, Harold muses, "Odd, that I, whose greatest...

Book Review
Tiny tots will love the satisfaction of spying a whole array of toy bunnies and other intriguing items in this cute addition to Jean Marzollo and Walter Wick's popular I Spy series. I spy a bunny mask,
a bride in a gown,
An apple with a bite,
and a bunny upside down.
Wick's crisp photographs, specially adapted from the numerous I Spy books (I Spy, I Spy Funhouse, I Spy Fantasy, etc.), feature old-fashioned toys and the kind of odds and ends you might find in Grandma's cupboard drawers. Wooden tops, marbles, old ticket stubs, harmonicas, tin cars, and jars full of buttons fill the right-side pages of this sturdy little board book. On the left is the minimal text, with each featured object pulled out of the context of the opposite page to help young readers pick it out from the ...

July 2002
Paperback

From Booklist
Damerow, author of several books on chickens and a breeder of dairy goats, has compiled a primer on easy-to-raise and companionable farm animals that will provide a good return for the novice farmer. The introduction acquaints the reader with all the pros and cons of keeping farm animals, covering such topics as manure, noise, and dealing with the neighbors. Six types of livestock are covered in depth, starting with chickens as perhaps the easiest to keep, then moving through ducks and geese, rabbits, goats, sheep, and finally dairy and beef cattle. Each chapter introduces the animal and describes breeds; discusses the animal's personality and how to handle it; provides information on feeding, housing, and routine care; and finally tells how to deal with the animal's output of eggs, milk, fiber, or meat. Simple, clear,...

Book Description
Quiet, cuddly, and ridiculously cute with their big floppy ears and cotton tails, rabbits make great companions. And while they may seem like simple little creatures, they are really very complex and never cease to amaze those who live with them.

Keeping a bunny healthy and happy requires a sincere commitment of time, energy, and love—one you’d better be sure you’re willing to invest before you take one of these gentle little creatures into your life.
