On My Bookshelf: Funny Bunny

Time to think spring, even if it's still a bit chilly here and yes, snow is in the weekend forecast. Sigh. But this book I have to share with you is bright and cheery!

Funny Bunny was written by Rachel Learnard with illustrations by Alice and Martin Provensen, published by Simon & Schuster in 1950.

This is a story about a cute little bunny without a tail who is called Funny Bunny by the other critters in the forest. He goes on a little adventure to find a tail for himself. The illustrations are darling and I love the vivid colors, so fun! This book seems like it would have been a designer's dream to work on with the pretty end sheets, type, and pop ups, such great additions to this lovely little story.

Love the lettering.

What a fun way to start the story!

Love that the birds are wearing sweaters.

How cute are the baby raccoons and kittens?

He found a tail!
