KIRKUS REVIEW

Twitchy, a soft white rabbit, is startled to discover the reason his parents don’t hop like he does: they aren’t his Bunnymom and his Bunnypop, but his adoptive parents. As he munches on a carrot and tries not to look too worried, he listens as his mother, Milfoil and Sedge, a cow and a horse, explain how he came to live with them. Confused and frightened, Twitchy runs away. When Mifoil and Sedge find him, he’s tried to change his appearance to match theirs, rolling down his ears, smearing his fur with mud, and adding a twig tail. After some kisses and comforting, Twitchy is assured that they are a family after all. Folksy artwork of a bonnet-wearing cow and a horse who sports a bandana are rendered in bright colors with some scratchy texturing. An easy and comforting look at a different kind of family. (Picture book. 4-8)
