Horn Book Review

Bunny Teetu, a sensitive soul, craves solitude, but its hard to come by in the small burrow he shares with his parents and siblings, aunt, uncle, and cousins. Bunnies are everywhereeven in his alphabet book (B is for...). One night, Teetu decides to break out of the burrow and embarks on a heros journey: B is for brave. B is for bold. B is not only for...bunnies. With an artists eye, he finds the moonlit forest thrilling: Soon nothing looked familiar. Everything looked different. It was wonderful. Teetu spends the following day peacefully observing his surroundings and the curious, quiet forest creatures he encounters. He began writing and sketching and creating. He would make...his own book! After another night, Teetu becomes tired. And hungry. And lost. Hes quickly found by his family, who celebrates his returnand his book. Lams elegant and inviting digitally rendered illustrations, which recall linocut prints, feature a contemplative palette of steel gray, slate blue, and black with red accents. The artist effectively uses white space to enhance mood and as a stage for his balletic trees, some of which bend fancifully into wild animal shapes. Unlike the protagonist in Margaret Wise Browns Runaway Bunny, Ferry and Lams dapper hero, unencumbered by any parental agenda, is free to roam. And to return back home.
