KIRKUS REVIEW

While flossing, Stone Rabbit discovers a bottomless pit of doom in his bathroom floor—one more reason to hate Mondays. He’s sucked into the hole and through a time vortex of laughing clocks that dumps him in a T. Rex nest. He escapes several herds of dinos only to find himself mistaken for a god by a tribe of stone-age bunnies. When their village is destroyed and the population captured by a high-tech Cro-Magnon named Willie, Stone Rabbit comes to the rescue (reluctantly). In gratitude, they find a way to send him home. Author of 2006’s Manga Claus and a web-comic (for older people) also starring Stone Rabbit, Craddock’s first graphic outing for children is Saturday-morning cartoons all over again—bright, full-color, googly-eyed adventures that zip by in a rush of nonsensical fun. Readers will be re-readers, and they’ll want volume two, Pirate Palooza (ISBN: 978-0-375-85660-0; PLB: 978-0-375-95660-7), out the same day. Best get both. (Graphic fiction. 7-10)
