KIRKUS REVIEW

Walton and Miglio (Bunny Day, 2002, etc.) are back with even more bunnies. This time, the bunnies are off to explore the world. Each spread features a different form of transportation, and the next manner of conveyance appears hidden, sometime obviously, sometimes not, in the picture. Readers or young listeners can guess from picture and rhyme clues what mode of transport will be next. “Vacation time is here, and so / Pack your bags. It’s time to go. / Bunnies, we’ll be traveling far, / Every bunny, into the . . . ” The final rhyme is left for the audience to supply until they turn the page for: “Car,” which is followed by its own four-line poem and ellipses. Watercolor-and-pencil illustrations are bright, and the anthropomorphic rabbits are expressive as in this duo’s previous offerings. The triple threat combination of bunnies, methods of transportation, and the guessing game format will make this a popular pick for lap or group story times. (Picture book. 2-5)
