“Who knew a rabbit with expressive eyebrows, huge eyes, and a small but mighty mouth could carry off a story as the solo character? Melanie Watt, author and illustrator of the Scaredy Squirrel series, accomplishes just that in this simple but noisy dialogue between rabbit and reader. Make room for this rabbit next to a certain well-known pigeon!”
-- Beverly Bauer, Redbery Books, Cable, WI


Description

Hooray! You're finally here!  But where were you? A bunny bounces through a range of emotions in this funny picture book about how difficult it is to wait. At first he's ecstatic that you, the reader, has arrived. But then he can't help letting you know that waiting for you took too long, was way too boring, and even became insulting. The bunny is ready to forgive everything if you will promise to stay. But hold on--he has to take a phone call. Wait!  Come back !Where are you going? Underneath this book's silly, in-your-face humor are feelings true to every child who has had to wait for someone's attention.
