Summary
Ôªø
Knocka-knocka-knocka!

That's the sound of three little bunnies on Mr. McGreely's doorstep, begging to come inside for the winter. But while Mr. McGreely shared his carrots with the bunnies last summer, he has no intention of sharing his house! So...

Hammer Bam! Smack Slam!

That's the sound of Mr. McGreely boarding up his windows to keep the bunnies out in the cold where they belong! The trouble is, no matter what Mr. McGreely does, the pesky pufftails have a way of sneaking inside -- and taking his things to make a warm, cozy nest for themselves. Will Mr. McGreely ever get the best of these infuriating flopears?

The three wily bunnies from Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! return in a sequel that's even funnier than their first adventure.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this follow-up to the well-received Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! (2002), Fleming continues her farcical tale of man against rabbits. Once again, a trio of pesky pufftails disturbs Mr. McGreely. This time, they are intent on sneaking into his cozy home for winter. After finding rabbit fur in his breakfast and on his favorite chair, Mr. McGreely tries everything to keep the bunnies out. He nails up his mail slot and windows, covers his chimney, and finally, after waking up to a pile of droppings on his pillow, bricks in his doors. Barricaded, he settles in for the winter, but when spring comes, he discovers his error: he is blocked in, while bunnies frolic on his warm, green lawn. A few references to Muncha! may lose kids who don't know the first title, and this story isn't as strong and cohesive as the original. Still, Karas' amusing paint-and-pencil illustrations make the most of the slapstick, and the irresistible rhyme and onomatopoeia (Tippy-tippy-tippy, wiggle, through the mail slot. Tippy-jiggle. ) will read-aloud well to a rowdy crowd. --Gillian Engberg Copyright 2006 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Fleming and Karas bring back the three bunnies that made Mr. McGreely's life so difficult in Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! This time it's winter, and "those wily twitchwhiskers" are seeking warm shelter. "Oh, no," says Mr. McGreely. "I shared my carrots with you, but I'm not sharing my house. Now, hop off, scram, shoo!" Famous last words: despite the man's best efforts to seal up his house (echoing the elaborate defense system he concocted in the original book), the bunnies find a host of ways to gain entry ("Tippy-tippy-tippy, hide!" becomes their refrain). Even more irritating, they always escape by morning-but not before leaving evidence behind (Mr. McGreely wakes up one morning and "instead of his teddy bear next to him, all he found was... bunny drops!"). Karas's freewheeling drawing style deftly keeps the story off-balance and captures Mr. McGreely's descent into comic madness. At the same time, the illustrator evokes the chill and darkness of winter. But as in its predecessor, the real fun is in the text, with its liberal use of onomatopoeia and infectious, percussive prose. Ages 4-8. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
