A is for Another Rabbit

A is for Another Rabbit

$17.99
More Info

A is for . . . A rabbit. B is for . . . Bunny. C is for . . . Can you believe how many rabbits are in this book?!

A rabbit-obsessed narrator makes an owl increasingly irate by refusing to play by the rules of a conventional alphabet book. Every entry is about bunnies, from "delightful, dynamic, daredevil rabbits" to "xylophone rabbits and rabbits on drums!" Readers will pore over scenes of bunnies at the circus, in a tiny town, at the museum, even in a motorcycle gang. Author-illustrator Hannah Batsel takes readers on a delightful romp through the alphabet and keeps them laughing all the way to the ridiculously fun conclusion.

"[A]n excellent elementary-age read-aloud. Creative, comedic, and carrot-loads of fun."--starred, Kirkus Reviews
