Book Review: Buddy and the Bunnies In Don't Play with Your Food by Bob Shea

Buddy and the Bunnies In Don't Play with Your Food is the latest picturebook from Bob Shea. My disclaimer, I am a huge Bob Shea fan. He is one of a handful of picturebook authors that I love beyond reason, but believe that he has more than earned my devotion.

Now, Buddy and the Bunnies In Don't Play with Your Food is all about a monster named Buddy and the bunnies he has deemed to be his next meal. However, when he told the bunnies to hop into his mouth and be eaten they distract him instead. They ask him to join them in baking cupcakes, going for a swim, playing at the carnival, or starting up a Buddy fan club. Before long, after having great fun with the bunnies, buddy is confused about whether the bunnies are really his lunch, or some new friends.

Buddy and the Bunnies In Don't Play with Your Food has all the fabulous artwork that Shea fans expect. There are bold lines, bright colors, and great humor on each page. the story, like the artwork, seems simple, but has tremendous humor and depth woven in. The flow and rhythm of the words combined with the bright artwork fairly beg to be read aloud and shared with a family, storytime crowd or classroom.
