redstarWolfie the Bunny. 8 min. Weston Woods. 2017. $59.95. ISBN 9781338161953.

PreS-Gr 2 –It’s bad enough when a new baby usurps your parents’ time and affection, but it’s worse when you’re a bunny and that baby left on the doorstep is a wolf. Dot is convinced the adopted child is going to eat the family up, but her parents are smitten. Just how long can her new baby brother survive on carrots alone? What to do, what to do? In this delightful video presentation, Ame Dyckman’s book receives the star treatment. Zachariah OHora’s humorous and kid-friendly illustrations have been cleverly animated as the author reads her text with clarity, heart, and tongue firmly in cheek. Original background music creates the perfect mood for this tale of interspecies siblings. VERDICT This is a giggle-worthy presentation that will have even adults snorting at the subtle yet incredibly witty touches. It will be a surefire hit with audiences.–Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA
