Bunnies!!! (delightful kidlit) by Kevan Atteberry (fab local artist)

I wanted to review this book the day after Kevan Atteberry spoke to my kidlit class last fall.  But, I was planning on buying a copy as a gift and didn't want to spoil the surprise.  And the book didn't come out until late January.  So, now it's mid-March, and I'm well on the way to recovery from my spine surgery, so here it is.

Fabulous! Evocative art!  Bunnies!!!!  

That's the executive summary.  In more detail, this is a wonderful picture book that shows a little monster exploring the woods.  With minimal language (I believe it's 47 words, most of them "Bunnies!") and expressive and colorful art, this lovely story captures that sense of wonder that toddlers have in abundance and can be so much fun to share.  Joyful and fun, a great way to end the day with your own little monster.

Here's the youtube trailer that captures some of the fun.
