Grade 3-6 Likable, well-intentioned ten-year-old Bunny Squill is happiest when she's talking. But no one else is, because when she talks she doesn't listen. Her big mouth gets her into real trouble when she ruins a surprise party and garbles a telephone message from Dad's boss because she was too busy talking to listen, causing the family to believe that they are being transferred to London in a week. Attempting to change her ways, she goes from one extreme to the other; she stops talking, singing, and laughing. Friends and family, at first relieved, soon miss the old Bunny, and look for ways to help her find a better balance. This fast-paced, often funny but gentle story ends on a satisfying note when Bunny learns to listen well enough to sing on key in the chorus for the annual community Christmas program at the local school. The story should appeal to young readers who may know someone (or themselves be) just like Bunny. Virginia Golodetz, St. Michael's College, Winooski, Vt.
