Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 3^-6. There are lots of books of opposites, but this one is particularly nice. It incorporates plenty of examples and funny illustrations that make the point so easily kids won't know there's also some learning going on. "Too big" shows a boy and girl bunny looking up at a huge bicycle; "Too small" has the boy biking on a tiny two-wheeler; "Just right" features the duo pushing off on a bicycle built for two. "Too dark" is three pair of eyes on a black page; and "Two bright" shows the boy bunny shining a flashlight on the girl rabbit and a mouse friend. The camping trip is "just right" when the flap of their tent is opened to let in the starshine. Easter-egg colors enliven the clever pictures. A fun place to start a discussion of opposites. --Ilene Cooper"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Opposites may attract, but they also prove to be humorous obstacles for a bunny couple and their mouse friend. When Bynum's (Altoona Baboona) winsome watercolor-and-ink drawings show the pair out dancing, for instance, the male bunny discovers that his mouse pal makes "too short" a partner, while the female bunny struggles with a "too tall" giraffe. In another spread, the bow tie-clad bunny goes entirely "too fast" on his roller skates to suit his sidekick, who nearly loses her purse and pearls, while he thinks her attempt to skate gingerly alongside a guardrail is "too slow." But each of Minters's (Cinder-Elly) comical encounters does resolve happily: the rabbits discover what is "just right" just by being together, whether it's swinging on the dance floor or skating away in an embrace, their diminutive buddy in tow.
