KIRKUS REVIEW

Rabbit plants his carrot seeds, tends his garden and waits and waits. When harvest time arrives, he finds his garden empty! He angrily asks mole who directs him to dog who directs him to cat who directs him to duck who directs him to pig. Rabbit can’t even find pig, and his carrots are still missing. He goes home dejected only to find SURPRISE! His house is full of friends and bowls of carrot soup. Segal’s first solo venture is a winner from soup to nuts. His watercolors of a distressed Rabbit and his innocent-acting friends are a perfect extension of the spare text. The ever-growing line of carrot-toting friends inexpertly hiding behind trees on the right hand pages (behind Rabbit’s back) will have toddlers giggling and pointing. Perfect for themes of gardening, friendship, parties and food. Rabbit’s recipe for carrot soup is included. Delish! (Picture book. 2-5)
