KIRKUS REVIEW

Likely to tickle many a preschool listener’s ribs, this droll episode pairs simply drawn, two-color pictures with a text that takes relentless advantage of repetition and rhymes for “head.” Having gotten out of bed with a rabbit (named, naturally, Fred) on his head, a lad proceeds down to get fed, and brings his understandably astonished mother around to acceptance by proving that bunny-capped is not handicapped: “Books can be read with a bunny on your head. Peanut butter can be spread with a bunny on your head,” and more, on to even, “explore the seabed. . . .” “ ‘Wow,’ Mom exclaims at last, ‘You look pretty cool with that bunny on your head!’ ” Sister’s subsequent entrance with an entirely different sort of creature on her noggin adds a final giggle to this cousin of David Small’s Imogene’s Antlers (1985). (Picture book. 4-6)
