Another adventure of the amiable, feather-brained hen (Minerva Louise at School, 1996, etc.) relies on the same premise as its predecessors: Minerva Louise visits a strange environment--this time a household where there is a new baby--but her perceptions are entirely bound by the limits of her barnyard experiences. Seeing an empty crib, she identifies it as a rabbit hutch and begins searching for the ""new bunny"" that must live there. And Minerva always manages to find what she's looking for in the end--much to the delight of listeners who have been laughing all along at her blithe efforts to make sense of the world by force-fitting it into the only categories she knows. Large, simple shapes and bold, flat colors inside soft black outlines are composed into pictures as lighthearted and charming as the tale.
