Astro Bunnies

By Christine Loomis

Go to catalog

"Looking suspiciously like toddlers in 'feety' pajamas, these inquisitive bunnies launch their rockets and zoom away. Measuring comets and gathering moondust is nothing compared to floating weightless and meeting the three-eared bunnies from another planet! But no matter where astro bunnies roam, they will always come back home, especially when it's time to snuggle down for the night. A lilting, refreshing alternative to earthbound bedtime books, this new collaboration features art by an award-winning artist who has an uncanny ability to create the most sophisticated, childlike world you've ever seen."
