KIRKUS REVIEW

Little Rabbit has an imaginary best friend named Harry, but what will Harry do when Little Rabbit goes to school? Little Rabbit loves playing with Harry in winter snow, rolling down the hill with Harry in the spring grass and climbing trees with Harry in the summer. A very sympathetic and understanding Mother Rabbit patiently supplies Harry with his own lemonade and cookies, lets Little Rabbit stay up past his bedtime to keep Harry company and even tolerates it when Little Rabbit refuses to eat his Brussels sprouts. But she warns Little Rabbit that when he starts school in the fall, Harry won’t be able to have his own desk and will have to be quiet. When school starts, Harry is so quiet that as Little Rabbit makes new friends and becomes involved in school activities, Harry gradually disappears. And that’s okay. Humorous acrylic illustrations chronicle Little Rabbit’s escapades with and without his imaginary playmate as he makes the transition from life with Harry to life with real friends in this amiable homage to the invisible playmate. (Picture book. 3-7)
