But in a jungle filled with beasts both big and small, perhaps being tiny is just right! Inspired by the rhythms and humor of Afro-Cuban folktales, award-winning author Margarita Engle wrote this charming picture book in honor of every child's favorite springtime animal.

From Booklist:

In this adaptation of an Afro-Cuban folktale, a tiny rabbit in the jungle doesn’t like being tiny. He wants to be as tall as a giraffe, with a nose as long as an elephant’s and a tail as enormous as a snow-capped mountain. But he remains tiny. Rabbit does grow, however, albeit just a little, and his long ears give him something even better than height. Now he has the ability to enjoy all the sounds of the jungle and to heed the sound of a lion approaching, and his small size enables him to pop into the safety of a rabbit hole. Walker’s acrylics convey the light and shade of the jungle with some nice comic touches, such as the woodpecker who taps out a growth chart for the rabbit on a tree. Walker takes care to make the rabbit look very much like a toddler, while the typeface makes words like tall and tiny just that—tall, tiny, and so forth. Engle delivers here a nifty life lesson in valuing what you have. Preschool-Grade 2. --Connie Fletcher
