KIRKUS REVIEW

Horse distills a universal experience into an amusing story with distinct characters and delightful detail. The irrepressible Little Rabbit is back, and this time he’s heading off to cause chaos at school. Of course, it’s not Little Rabbit’s fault—it’s that naughty Charlie Horse (a polka-dotted pull toy), who tempts Little Rabbit into misbehaving in a wide variety of ways. Luckily, Little Rabbit’s teacher’s patience and the generosity of two new friends prevent minor mishaps from turning into total disasters. Although ostensibly oblivious, it’s clear that Little Rabbit has learned his lesson when he acknowledges that from now on Charlie Horse will be better off at home. Winsome ink-and-watercolor illustrations showcase a charming woodland world overrun with adorable bunnies. Although the pictures have an old-fashioned feel, Horse’s deadpan delivery makes the story truly timeless. Young children, and especially their parents, will recognize both Little Rabbit’s imaginative rambunctiousness and his new-kid-at-school nerves. Utterly engaging and ultimately reassuring.
