Rabbit’s Bad Habits

Reviewed by:

A peace-loving bear, a grumpy rabbit, a thief, a wolf, and poo all add up to a magical book about friendship, competition and rabbit digestion.
Bear wakes up during her hibernation to find that someone has stolen all of her food. Deciding that she can’t do much about it, she decides to make a snowman. Grumpy Rabbit tries to out-do her, but risks his life when Wolf see him and decides he will make a tasty morsel for dinner. With a little help from Bear, Rabbit is saved and so an unlikely friendship begins. Rabbit is invariably grumpy (which Bear puts down to the fact that rabbits eat their own poo – who knew??). In contrast, Bears’ laid back personality and easy responses to his hilarious tirades begin to wear away his crankiness.
The philosophical undertone never overwhelms the funny aspect of the story, rather is served as gentle side notes of carrots with honey. Rabbits’ Bad Habits will appeal to younger grade readers who are looking for something more substantial and modern than Frog and Toad.
