When you're a champion ice-skater, you have to wait for the conditions to be just right.
You have to wait through spring.
You have to wait through summer.
You have to wait through autumn until . . .
Finally, as the snow begins to fall, you can show the world just how good you really are
From Joanna Wright, the author/illustrator of "The Secret Circus" and "Bandits, "comes "Bunnies on Ice," one very self-assured young rabbit's first-hand account of the trials and tribulations of being a skating star, with illustrations that will melt your heart on even the coldest winter day.
"With books and artwork lining the walls and a blazing fireplace for toasting marshmallows, the rabbit family's supremely cozy home will be the subject of many readers' envy, and Wright conveys a strong sense of familial togetherness in every scene."--Publishers Weekly
"Along with leaving her brushwork visible on heavily textured canvas, Wright uses a palette of harmonious pinks and browns to imbue each scene with an air of comfy domesticity." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Her signature naif, acrylic-on-canvas artwork is the star of the show; warm and inviting, it depicts the bunny family’s cozy tree dwelling and a myriad of wonderful details (a snowman with bunny ears!). Nice for wintertime sharing over a cup of cocoa." -- Booklist
"This sweet story about a bunny who is determined to follow her dream is a great addition." -- School Library Journal, starred review
"The full-bleed color-saturated illustrations, with their almost palpable texture, will pull readers in to the bunny’s small world." -- The Horn Book
