By enlisting the help of Uncle Bunny, of course! Not only is Uncle Bunny always ready to have some fun, he sets a good example by eating his celery, tomatoes, peas, mushrooms, and . . . wait a minute!

With a rollicking text and bright, funny illustrations, Susanna Gretz spins a story that finicky bunnies everywhere will relate to.

Susanna Gretz created RABBIT FOOD to let young picky eaters know that they're not the only ones who sometimes avoid eating their vegetables. She says, "Lest children think grownups always eat up all their vegetables, Uncle Bunny is an equally fussy adult."From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-In this entertaining twist on the fussy-eater theme, children will discover that adults can also be picky about food. John, a young bunny, refuses to eat his vegetables. Frustrated, his father enlists the help of Uncle Bunny, who is left to care for his niece and nephews over the weekend with the implicit instruction that, "...John eats some of everything." By engaging the youngsters in rigorous physical activities such as soccer, tug-of-war, and mountain climbing, Uncle Bunny makes sure everyone becomes hungry, including John, who succumbs to his voracious appetite and digs into his veggies. However, as Uncle expounds on the need to eat vegetables, he manages to avoid eating his carrots. When confronted by his nephew, Uncle Bunny admits to his dislike for the root but tries some, agreeing, "...they're not bad." Gretz's watercolor illustrations are a perfect complement to the text. The portrayals of the bespectacled and bandanna-wearing uncle and the varied facial expressions of John are especially endearing. This book will be enjoyed by young children, and adults trying to prod finicky eaters can utilize it along with Vivian French's Oliver's Vegetables (Orchard, 1996) and Nicholas Heller's Peas (Greenwillow, 1993).
