Rah! Buddy's a monster, and he's hungry ! Time for all cute little bunnies to hop into his mouth. "Oh no!" they say. "There are cupcakes in the oven!" They offer Buddy some, and he becomes too full to eat the bunnies. He'll have to come back tomorrow. And so it goes between Buddy and the bunnies--they take him swimming, after which he is too tired to eat; they take him on all the rides at a carnival, after which he is too dizzy to eat; they even form a Buddy fan club . . . and who could eat their own fan club? Eventually Buddy realizes that the bunnies have tricked him. The bunnies aren't food at all--they are friends!

The bunnies' seemingly naive offers of friendship are a charming--and clever--mode of survival in this sweet and silly story about a not-at-all-scary monster.

I love this book for storytime! It is perfect for using funny voices—guttural growls for Buddy the monster and sweet little squeaky voices for all of the bunnies. Bob Shea has irreverent sense of humor that kids and their adults can booth appreciate. The artwork is adorable and the punchline at the end is so very worth it!

The book is perfect for trying out your gravelliest monster growl or your highest-pitched bunny voice.

My 3.5yo asked for this book every night the entire time it was checked out! Enough randomness expected from Bob Shea (we love the Dinosaur vs. books), but also a little heart-warming. Those bunnies are smart! We also enjoyed counting the bunnies as their population grew throughout the story.
