Reviews

It's rare to find a book that will appeal to both the lovers of monster trucks and the kids who go into raptures at the sight of a fuzzy little critter; this is that book.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

Knudsen offers an uncompromisingly macho version of the defend-your-friends theme, and its cultural references (combat boots, gym membership) and the inherent humor in seeing the bunnies charm their way into Mike's heart will keep readers attentive--and laughing.
--Publishers Weekly

Even the toughest readers will crumble under the appeal of these bunnies.
--Kirkus Reviews

Readers will fall for the adorable bunnies and cheer Mike's new devotion to them. Share this doggedly worthy read-aloud during your favorite friendship-themed storyhours for a lot of growls and laughs.
--School Library Journal

Colorful illustrations are both appropriately tough and tender. Mean and cute not only do mix; they match in delightful ways.
--Library Media Connection

The eternal struggle between tough and tender gets a workout in this adorable book.
