KIRKUS REVIEW

 A boxed set of three miniature books add up to more than the sum of their parts. In each, a little rabbit (gray, brown, white) has a terrible day, succinctly depicted with Wells's unique brand of humor-cum-sympathy; then, in a double spread with a verse repeated in each book (``Far beyond the moon and stars,/Twenty light-years south of Mars,/Spins the gentle Bunny Planet/And the Bunny Queen is Janet''), the sufferer is whisked away to ``the day that should have been'': an idyllic fantasy in which the bunny plays happily alone, has the full attention of one loving parent, and/or gets a chance to feel competent. Especially when taken together, these little stories and their endearing illustrations are remarkably cozy and comforting. Also available individually as First Tomato, The Island Light, and Moss Pillows, in a larger size (enhancing the art), at $12.89 each. (Picture book. 3-7)
