Overview
Join Bunny for a top-secret trip to the library in a story that celebrates the love of reading

Bunny loves to sit outside the library with the kids and listen to summer story time. But when the weather gets cold and everyone moves inside, his daily dose of joy is gone. Desperate, Bunny refuses to miss out on any more reading time and devises a plan to sneak into the library at night . . . through the library's book drop

What follows is an adorable caper that brings an inquisitive, fuzzy bunny and his woodland pals up close and personal with the books they have grown to love. A warm celebration of the power of books, Bunny's Book Club is sure to bring knowing smiles to any child, parent, teacher, bookseller, and librarian who understands the one-of-a-kind magic of reading.

Bunny, a rabbit, has been eavesdropping on the local librarys outdoor story time and fallen in love with how books can spark an array of adventures: As he listened, Bunny imagined himself climbing mountains... captaining a ship... ruling a kingdom. But now that its sweater weather, and story time has moved indoors, what will Bunny do? The answer isnt exactly legal (book return slots are intended for books, after all) and it gets a little out of hand (pretty soon Bunnys friends all want in on his after-hours library excursions). But the librarian turns out to be forgiving where these trans-species bibliophiles are concerned, and since All libraries have rules, Bunny and his accomplices end up with their own library cards. Debut author Silvestro can sometimes be too literal and earnest (He followed his nose to the adventure section), but she makes the pleasures of reading abundantly clear. Mai-Wyss (The Passover Lamb) smartly divides the storytelling into small, telling moments, amplifying each vignette with a fine eye for detail and warmhearted humor. Ages 37. Authors agent: Liza Voges, Eden Street Literary. (Feb.)

Books are better with friends

When winter comes, book-loving Bunny can no longer eavesdrop on the library’s outdoor story time. To feed his insatiable need for books, Bunny squeezes through the book-return drop at the library. When Bunny’s secreted stash of books starts a trend, several critter friends become regulars at the book drop—until they are discovered by the librarian. But if anybody understands the need to read, wouldn’t it be a librarian?

Author Annie Silvestro and illustrator Tatjana Mai-Wyss tell a cozy tale guaranteed to draw in readers and book lovers of all ages. Every page bursts with details, which will keep little eyes amused. Moths flutter in the beam of the flashlight, Bunny’s bunny slippers wait next to his bed, and carrot cupcakes are a burrow staple. Fabrics and books and woodland flora are elaborately sketched, creating a realistic, familiar world. Silvestro’s text is full of alliteration and description, and the forest creature dialogue rings with kid-friendly humor.

Bunny’s Book Club will prove worthy of story times large and small.
