Ardagh, Philip. Bunnies in a Boat. Ben Mantle, Illus. Candlewick, 01/2023. pp. Picture Book. GRADES Preschool – 1. $17.99. 978-1-5362-2833-5. ADDITIONAL.
These rambunctious, fun-loving bunnies create havoc wherever they go. This time around they go for a joy ride in a speed boat, much to the chagrin of those on the beach, the water, other boats, on the wharf, and even in a restaurant. Mantle’s pencil and digital illustrations provide many small details and hidden elements for readers to look at, stretching well beyond the simple chaos resulting from the boat and the fast-paced, simply singable text. Great for those who love impossible chaos and those who enjoy hunting down lots of illustrated details hidden throughout.
