Tippy-tippy-tippy, Hide! by Candace Fleming, illustrated by Brian Karas



Somehow, Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! just didn't grab me. But Tippy-Tippy-Tippy, Hide! did. Three cold little bunnies are up against mean Mr. McGreely (sounds kinda like McGregor, huh?). Every time they find a way in he blocks it. Until he finally wins the battle....or has he?

The scrawly illustrations, including menacing eyebrows on the part of Mr. McGreely and huge bunny ears are mischievously engaging and there's enough rhyme and repetition to hold the interest of a variety of ages. Children will get a kick out of the naughty bunnies, who find their way inside no matter what McGreely does - and eventually have the last laugh!

Verdict: A fun read-aloud for storytime. Recommended

Thanks for the review; that looks cute! I'm assembling a list of Easter recommendations on my site now, paired with a give away. You get an entry for every Easter book you suggest (up to 5). Would love to add this one to my list, if you'd like to comment about it. http://infantbibliophile.blogspot.com/2009/03/recommended-childrens-easter-books-and.html
