A rainy day triggers indoor mischief. Brightly dressed Bunny and a mouse pal entertain themselves with various projects when the weather won’t let them go outside. Simple, rhyming text (“Don’t peek. / Hide-and-seek. / Bunny / underneath the bed”) and Williams’s full-bleed, color-soaked illustrations depict their antics, which include a pillow fight, origami with papa’s newspaper, trying on mama’s shoes, drawing on the mirror with lipstick, making a telephone out of tin cans, playing with blocks and so forth. When the rain goes away, the fun-loving pair rushes outside. The swings and the red wagon are “slippery drippy / everything. / No more Bunny fun today?” The discovery of a big mud puddle definitively answers that question. Williams’s figures are oversized, emphasizing the boldness of their romp, and the inviting design should attract the very young, but will parents want to encourage such (mis)behavior? (Picture book. 2-5)
