KIRKUS REVIEW

After just one week, Wilson the rabbit loves his teacher, Miss Lovely, so much that he just can’t wait for the next one. Accordingly, he leaps out of bed, gets ready (his parents have overslept), runs to the bus stop and then, when the bus doesn’t come, to school—where he finds himself all alone. Undaunted, he follows the school routine by himself. Throughout his day, flaps lift to show a scary reptilian something drawing ever closer. Preschoolers apprehensive about moving up will enjoy both the silliness of Wilson’s behavior and the release of tension at the big reveal—and Wilson’s radiant face when he sees Miss Lovely, at school on Saturday to pick up some forgotten papers. Sweetly surreal. (Picture book/novelty. 4-7)
