Reviews

K-Gr 2-Chloe is the middle child in her large rabbit family. Of the Bunnies' many shared activities, her favorite is after-dinner family fun time; however, when Dad brings home a television, she is sure that the fun has gone out of their shared time together. Her disappointment is short-lived. She and Baby Bridget soon find their own entertainment-the TV box and bubble wrap. Before long, the box becomes the best show with all the Bunny kids clamoring to get inside. After the youngsters are herded up to bed, even Dad can't resist popping a few bubbles. Soft, natural colors highlight the family resemblance while bright pastels accent each rabbit's individuality. Bunnies fill the pages, but an absence of background clutter keeps the illustrations simple and engaging. The gentle, child-friendly artwork complements the story told with minimal text. The result is a calming bedtime story for family sharing.-Carolyn Janssen, Public Lib. of Cincinnati & Hamilton County, OH (c) Copyright 2012.

"In CHLOE, McCarty captures the charm of a large squashed-together family, just in time for summer reunions."--Boston Globe
"Still bewitching, yet serious about her strong opinions, Chloe continues to stand out in a crowd."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"What elevates this is McCarty's fabulous art, which brings the idea of a really big family delightfully to life. A warm and wonderful treat that's great for family story hours."--Booklist (starred review)
"Drawn in delicate pen-and-ink and watercolors, McCarty's impeccably cute creatures seem to hover magically in midair, like little balloons in some fantastical, vaguely Japanese idyll. ...After this ode to imaginative play among siblings, we can understand why Henry fell so deeply in love."--New York Times Book Review
"The gentle, child-friendly artwork complements the story told with minimal text. The result is a calming bedtime story for family sharing."--School Library Journal (starred review)
