KIRKUS REVIEW

Loopy, a beloved blue, stuffed bunny, has been left behind at the doctor’s office, and it’s too late to pick him up. Loopy’s child is very upset: Sleep is not possible without Loopy! Besides, what if something happens? What if some other child takes Loopy and treats him badly? What if the doctor’s office has ghosts? What if Loopy gets scared? Obviously, Loopy must be rescued. But what if Loopy’s child gets lost trying to find him? And what if a grumpy giant intervenes? He could carry the child to a lair full of bugs! Suddenly the doorbell rings; someone is at the door holding something with suspiciously long ears. Maybe sleep will come tonight after all. Korthues’s extremely appealing illustrations gently embody the child’s fears without overwhelming this warm and comforting selection. With wit reminiscent of the Charlie and Lola books, this is sure to be a favorite with fans of Knuffle Bunny as well as all who have a favorite stuffed animal of their own. (Picture book. 3-6)
