Two irrepressible bunnies explore the springtime during the evening hours and have fun nibbling in a garden, frolicking in the berry bushes, scurrying through a rainstorm, and running from a swooping owl before settling down to sleep.

Monica Wellingtonwas born in London and lived in Switzerland and Germany as a child.She has written and illustrated many books for young children, including Mr. Cookie Baker and Apple Farmer Annie. She now lives in New York City, where she teaches at the School of Visual Arts.
The creator of Mr. Cookie Baker and All My Little Ducklings blends kaleidoscopic art and fanciful language in this atmospheric tale of nocturnal perambulations. As "Day is ending/ Nightime coming," two simply drawn, personable bunnies undertake a series of adventures (with "Thunder crashing/ Lightning flashing," for example, the pair huddles beneath a tree). Wellington's gouache, watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations are at once sophisticated and childlike, with busy, detailed patterns and flattened perspectives. Her snow-white rabbits are especially effective against her multicolored backgrounds. Lilting cadences make playful use of onomatopoeia and other linguistic legerdemain: a "big bear in the orchard lumbering" sounds a mighty "thumping bumping thud," while the bunnies "quiver shiver shake" during a storm and "scurry hurry home" as daylight arrives. Ages 2-5.
