Doreen Cronin is the New York Times bestselling author of picture books such as Rescue Bunnies, the Diary of . . . series, and Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type, a Caldecott Honor Book. She also wrote The Trouble with Chickens, the first book in the J.J. Tully Mystery series. When she was growing up, Doreens dogs were Archie and Trapper (after two of her favorite television characters). She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
“Cronin’s story feels like an actual story, complete with mini plot arcs, fast parts, slow parts, and character development—a nice change from the fast dash of most picture books.”
“Cronin and Menchin team up again to bring slapstick humor, impeccable timing, and cheesy movie quotes to this rousing tale of bravery, determination, and knowing when to do the Bunny Hop.”
-The Horn Book
“Cronin and Menchin (Stretch, 2009, etc.) team up once again in this humorous tale that oddly-yet quite successfully-combines the message of perseverance, the importance of rescue workers and sly nods to adult readers along the way.”
