From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- This brief retelling of a Native American tale has a familiar structure and a satisfying ending. When Coyote sees Rabbit race by, he thinks there must be hunters in pursuit, so he scoots off too. Moose sees Coyote dash past, Wolf sees Moose, Bear sees Wolf, and all flee the imagined danger. At last they stop, exhausted, and ask Rabbit why they're running. "Why were you running." Rabbit replies, "I have no idea. But me --I was late for dinner!" Tanaka tells the action-packed, cumulative tale in a matter-of-fact manner with a minimum of detail. Gay's fluidly brushed, lighthearted watercolor cartoons feature simply rendered animals (Coyote looks more like a fox) with large eyes and comical exaggerated expressions a la Janet Stevens. The simplicity and logic will not be lost on even preschool audiences. A good story-hour choice. --John Peters, New York Public Library
