"Those who play roughly with their toys may think twice about this story, and the wryness of Nubby's hopes that fames and riches will solve all his problems is a bonus for older folks reading to younger ones."--Bulletin

"Nubby's reminiscences make the bunny's self-important crankiness both funny and relatable."--Publishers Weekly

"Both text and pictures are energetic and funny....A very happy ending has the bunny nestled together with his boy (and pup), each one with a new appreciation for the other." --The Horn Book

"A worthy tribute to all the beleaguered, beloved toys who serve as constant, comforting companions through childhood." --BookPage
