The Curse of the School Rabbit
Tommy’s little sister, Angie, brings the school classroom rabbit home to take care of when the teacher has to be gone for a while to visit her mother. The rabbit’s name is Snowflake, but maybe it should really be named Trouble because this rabbit is nothing but trouble. Snowflake seems to take great delight in peeing on people and in escaping its confines. When Angie gets sick, all the work of Snowflake falls on Tommy. Meanwhile, their father is an out-of-work actor trying to find a new job, and his friend is visiting and trying to help. Things get pretty crazy, and Snowflake is at the center of all the craziness, dragging Tommy into it all.
Author Judith Kerr has written a really fun story with interesting, well-rounded characters. It is told in first-person from Tommy’s point of view. The voice is pitch-perfect for a young British boy. American kids will have a good time seeing what an old-fashioned British children’s book is like, with lots of cute line drawings to carry them through. This will be perfect for emerging readers in first or second grade.
