Wolfie the Bunny by Ame Dyckman, illustrated by Zachariah OHora

Published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Summary:  On the first page, the Bunny family arrives home to find a baby wolf on their doorstep.  Mama and Papa immediately fall in love with the cute little cub, but their young daughter Dot exclaims, “He’s going to eat us all up!” a refrain that continues throughout the book.  But Mama and Papa don’t seem to hear her as they coo over him and snap photos of Wolfie’s every move.  Wolfie grows into a toddler who adores his big sister.  One day, the parents send the two of them out to get more carrots (now Wolfie’s favorite food).  When Wolfie opens his mouth at the grocery store, Dot is sure her prediction is coming true.  But he’s not looking at her…he’s looking at the gigantic bear in front of him.  Dot’s reaction saves the day and cements the brother-sister bond between them.

Pro:  This is an unusual and highly entertaining take on sibling rivalry.  The picture of Wolfie in a bunny suit is priceless.

Cons:  I can’t help wondering how this family dynamic is going to work out over time.
