PreSchool-Grade 1-- This cheerful morality tale will speak to children who, like Bunny, hate the word, "Bedtime!" Coaxed outside by the full moon, Bunny finds that the nighttime world is not asleep, as his mother had told him; rather, it is teeming with life and excitement. He feasts in a garden, escapes from a hungry owl who doesn't want to play, and explores a garbage can with a family of raccoons. In the thunder and rain, he dances a lively fandango, double-shuffles into a turkey trot, and ends his storm dance with a deep bow. Tired, wet, and cold, he runs home, where loving arms and his warm bed await. Apple's colorful illustrations liven Bunny's nocturnal adventures, each picture punctuated with charming details. The rotund animals are humorous and expressive, conveying the mood of the moment. Bunny is a determined little character from whom one would expect such derring-do, while Mama and Papa Rabbit are seen as loving and understanding of their errant offspring. This is a better choice than Ba Ba Sheep Wouldn't Go to Sleep (Orchard, 1988) by Dennis Panek to address the topic of bedtime. --Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, Neb.
