Big Bad Bunny by Franny Billingsley, art by G. Brian Karas
That was not what I expected! I hate to spoil a surprise so I’ll leave the end to you… I love the style of the drawings so much detail and yet a child like quality an odd but effective mix. The alternating of perspective between Big Bad Bunny and Mama Mouse sets the scene well and keeps the tension up until you finally realize and then Mama Mouse has to be the coolest mom. Even the fonts help tell the story which is something I feel like I haven’t seen in a long time. By the way… I just realized that Baby Boo-Boo was a girl from reading the front flap and then flipped back through to find the one reference to the fact that she was a girl. This book now makes me even happier.
