KIRKUS REVIEW

A conventional story about a family of rabbits, the smallest of whom ruins his siblings' toys, playhouse, and secret burrow and learns that he can win their forgiveness only by working with them and fixing what he broke. The formula is familiar, and the execution is bland. The overlong text (where the word straight appears as ""straigth"") hasn't much color or rhythm. The characters, in word and art, are nearly indistinguishable from one another, even though Tharlet's hazy illustrations beautifully evoke both Davy's smallness and the exuberance that lands him in so much trouble.
