KIRKUS REVIEW

 An engaging tale about a little gray bunny whose mother reads him an imaginative story-within-the-story: a book about Rodney Rabbit, who lives in a cabbage and has an eggplant desk, an onionskin toy plane, carrot stilts, etc.--all charmingly realized in the author's gentle pen-and-watercolor illustrations. Rodney even has a book about ``a little gray rabbit who looks just like you,'' which his mother reads to him: a more conventional anthropomorphization, but with the same vegetables still starring--this time as food. Clever and amusing, a satisfying bedtime story that ends with both little rabbits tucked into bed after enjoying their books, Rodney with his head on a cauliflower. (Picture book. 3-7)
