From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- There's trouble at the barnyard post office. All the chickens who deliver the mail are cooped up with the flu. Desperate for help, postmaster Bernie Bear calls the Euclid Bunny Speedy Delivery Service. Euclid dashes off with the mail, but instead of working most of the day, the hasty bunny completes the job in a mere 20 minutes. Letters and packages have been delivered--but to all the wrong nests, pens, and pastures. Readers may be amused by the mix-ups--large items are delivered to small creatures and vice versa. However, some of the humor is weak or will not be grasped by young children. The loose cartoon style lacks visual contrast and seems jumbled when the pages include many images scattered across the spread. Also, details that reinforce the silly fun get lost. The joke at the end--that Euclid may have to fill in for the Barnyard Easter Bunny--is written in cursive script, which will be hard for beginning readers to decipher. The Ahlbergs' The Jolly Postman (Little, 1986) is a better choice. --Virginia E. Jeschelnig, Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library, Willowick, OH

From Publishers Weekly:

Everyone at the Barnyard Post Office is down with the flu and no one is left to deliver the mail. Postmaster Bernie Bear calls the Euclid Bunny Speedy Delivery Service and, "quick as a bunny," he arrives. Bernie explains the circuitous route to Euclid, who is anxious to be off. In his quest for speed, however, Euclid sacrifices efficiency. As a result, the moose receives a mouse-sized TV set, Roland Reindeer receives six tiny hats meant for ducklings and the cows receive a pint-sized tea set not at all suited to their large hooves. Faced with an irate Bernie, Euclid tears around "bunny quick" redistributing all the mail and, to everyone's satisfaction, gets things right this time. Koscielniak's ( Hector and Prudence ) breathless, lighthearted tale of post office mayhem contains many visual asides that are sure to amuse preschoolers. His frantic pictures never slacken; their high energy and zippy details seem to give them a life of their own. Ages 3-7.
