Praise For Happy Birthday, Bunny!

* “This is as memorable and heartfelt as a birthday book gets…. This isn’tabout irony; it’s pure celebration, and readers will share wholeheartedly inthe pleasure.”

* “Scanlon delivers a sweet, rhyming text to tell the story of a little bunny’s birthday in Graegin’s debut picture book…. Perhaps taking a cue from the closing line’s reference to the girl as “sweet honey bun,” Graegin casts the unnamed central characters as a family of anthropomorphic bunnies,introducing a veritable peaceable kingdom of relatives and friends who come to celebrate on the special day. Graegin’s illustrations…mark her as an up-and-coming artist to watch, as they evoke a style akin to that of Peter McCarty, Laura McGee Kvasnosky and Polly Dunbar. Happy birthday to a splendid book for new birthday boys and girls.”
