KIRKUS REVIEW

A little rabbit enjoys a magical interlude with his snowman. Daddy Rabbit chuckles indulgently when Little Rabbit insists that his snowman is “real,” but readers will be able to tell from its encrusted sparkles that the bunny knows what he’s talking about. Sent off to find berries (in the snow? really?), Little Rabbit becomes lost when a snowstorm suddenly kicks up. Lo and behold, the Snowman appears and leads him back to Daddy. That’s about it. Edgson’s soft-edged paintings deliver the goods: cute bunny, snowy wonderland, broadly beaming sparkly Snowman. If there’s not much there, it is nevertheless an undemanding romp. Still, this has been done so many times before, chances are good it will last for only one or two readings before being cast aside for something different. (Picture book. 3-5)
