Rating: 4.5 stars
I have to say, right up front, that Lorelei would give this 6 stars. All three kindergarten classes at her school voted for their favorite book, and this is the one she chose. She thinks it is so funny. HI-larious. Laugh-out-loud, pee-in-your-pants, bust-a-gut, funny.
I think it's okay.
Which means--gasp!--I'm a muggle! I've been doing my best to stay young and cool and carefree but...it's...it's just no use. I can't shake the twinge of morbid in the end of this book, so I can't completely laugh right alongside Lorelei. I'm curious what you people think out there. (Mom? Thoughts?)
|Lorelei reads the book to Kiefer.|
But wait! He remembers seeing it!
He scrolls through his brain until he realizes the very funny thing: Rabbit was wearing his hat when Bear talked with him! Bear runs back, confronts Rabbit, and they have a two-page spread of a stare-down. The. Tension. Is. Thick.
Turn the page.
We see no Rabbit, just Bear wearing his red party hat, and Bear denies ever having seen Rabbit.
Enter Lorelei, laughing her blond little head off, at the fact that Bear ate Rabbit! Ha ha ha ha!
She points out how there is now a bulge in Bear's belly. Clearly, Mommy, Bear ate Rabbit. Ha ha ha ha!
I dunno. I'm kind of sad for Rabbit. Poor guy. Does he really deserve to be eaten?! Over a silly hat? I think I managed a fake little laugh, only so Lorelei could remain clueless about how seriously I take some books, about how muggle-like I really am. Don't judge me for putting on a false laugh for her!
