KIRKUS REVIEW

A tiny bunny’s nighttime flights of fancy soar straight up to the stars.

Oh So Tiny (Oh So for short) starts off his story as just another little bunny playing with ordinary garden creatures. But he longs to be big—as a dragon, a forest and even a mountain, echoing the feelings of the 2- and 3-year-olds who will grab onto this story and demand repeated rereadings. As Oh So’s fantasy expands, he becomes taller than a forest and bigger than bears and mountains. He finds gigantic, tree-sized clover and drives a train of “crunchy carrots as big as railroad cars,” with carrot-shaped fish swimming through an ocean of lettuce. But then Oh So grows lonely and wishes for companionship, returning to his former tiny size and meeting a pretty, long-lashed bunny who offers him a clover blossom of his own in a gentle, satisfying conclusion. Fluorescent colors, unusual perspectives and an irresistible, blue-eyed bunny with a glowing pink nose draw readers in, but it’s the emotional flow of the text and the wildly exuberant ego exploration that make this fanciful story memorable.

Keep dreaming, little Oh So. You are oh so sweet. (Picture book. 2-5)
