  说起这本书,当时一拿到,我就由衷地佩服作者,用了这么简单的画面,就能如此幽默地介绍这只兔子,讲述理解和友谊。但我没给不到两周岁的儿子看,因为我觉得他会不理解,或者说,我不能以恰如其分的语言讲述给他听。后来,我觉得简洁而夸张的画面应该是孩子所喜欢的,于是开始随意地给他翻翻讲讲,儿子也没表现出对这本书的热情。*近,我把自己当成是这只小兔子,讲述的时候配上动作和象声词,开始整本书地呈现给儿子,没想到儿子也乐呵呵地学起了我的样子,而且对下一个画面牢记于心,跟我合作着讲述。太棒了,我想,这就是这本书魅力所在吧!
  如果您孩子也已经两岁了,那就赶紧与他分享快乐、幽默而又温暖的《我的兔子朋友》吧!
一只会惹麻烦的兔子为了帮它的朋友想尽一切办法,全然不担心会惹毛比它体型要大出好几十倍的动物的怒视,虽然这也为兔子的朋友带来了小小的困扰,但它仍把兔子当做自己的好朋友,因为兔子是为了帮它,虽然总是惹麻烦。

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

My friend Rabbit means well, begins the mouse narrator. But whatever he does, wherever he goes, trouble follows. Once Rabbit pitches Mouse's airplane into a tree, Rohmann tells most of the story through bold, expressive relief prints, a dramatic departure for the illustrator of The Cinder-Eyed Cats and other more painterly works. Rabbit might be a little too impulsive, but he has big ideas and plenty of energy. Rohmann pictures the pint-size, long-eared fellow recruiting an elephant, a rhinoceros and other large animals, and coaching them to stand one on top of another, like living building blocks, in order to retrieve Mouse's plane. Readers must tilt the book vertically to view the climactic spread: a tall, narrow portrait of a stack of very annoyed animals sitting on each other's backs as Rabbit holds Squirrel up toward the stuck airplane. The next spread anticipates trouble, as four duckling onlookers scurry frantically; the following scene shows the living ladder upended, with lots of flying feathers and scrabbling limbs. Somehow, in the tumult, the airplane comes free, and Mouse, aloft again, forgives his friend... even as the closing spread implies more trouble to follow. This gentle lesson in patience and loyalty, balanced on the back of a hilarious set of illustrations, will leave young readers clamoring for repeat readings. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-A simple story about Rabbit and Mouse, who, despite Rabbit's penchant for trouble, are friends. When Rabbit launches his toy airplane (with Mouse in the pilot seat at takeoff) and it gets stuck in a tree, he convinces his friend that he will come up with a plan to get it down. He does so by stacking animals on top of one another (beginning with an elephant and a rhinoceros) until they are within reach of the toy. The double-page, hand-colored relief prints with heavy black outlines are magnificent, and children will enjoy the comically expressive pictures of the animals before and after their attempt to extract the plane. The text is minimal; it's the illustrations that are the draw here.

From Booklist

Ages 4-8. Mouse, the narrator who flies a red and yellow biplane, tells listeners that his friend Rabbit "means well," but that trouble always follows him. Then comes a smart, sassy object lesson on how much trouble Rabbit brings. The fun of this is in the spacing and sequencing of the heavily ink-outlined drawings. After Rabbit has thrown Mouse's beloved biplane into a tree, one full page consists of tiny Mouse staring up, ink accents marking his exasperation. On the facing page, Rabbit darts off, promising a solution. The next double-spread shows an anxious Mouse as Rabbit drags one enormous tail into view. The space fills with a massive elephant. Then Rabbit pulls in, among others, a rhino, a reindeer, and a duck (followed, of course, by ducklings). Now, the two-page spread must be turned vertically to reveal a giant pyramid of animals, topped by a squirrel holding Mouse, who reaches for the biplane--then the mass topples. Rage-filled beasts turn on Rabbit. Mouse, flying in on his recovered plane, saves Rabbit from their clutches and claws. Tremendous physical humor delivers a gentle lesson about accepting friends as they are. Connie Fletcher

Review

"This is a very simple book designed for younger ages. It’s a fast reading book, but can help start a great discussion in giving the benefit of the doubt, in unconditional love, and in being a faithful friend."--Armchair Interviews
