Summary
Hooray! You're finally here!   But where were you?   A bunny bounces through a range of emotions in this funny picture book about how difficult it is to wait. At first he's ecstatic that you, the reader, has arrived. But then he can't help letting you know that waiting for you took too long, was way too boring, and even became insulting. The bunny is ready to forgive everything if you will promise to stay. But hold on--he has to take a phone call. Wait!  Come back !Where are you going?   Underneath this book's silly, in-your-face humor are feelings true to every child who has had to wait for someone's attention.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Author-illustrator Watt has created many amusing books about books, including Chester's Masterpiece (2010, in which a pet cat takes over the storytelling) and Have I Got a Book for You! (2009, featuring a comical salesman). Here, starting with the title, a rabbit exuberantly greets the reader. But then, in a nice twist that many children will appreciate, he turns on his reader and sternly asks. BUT WHERE WERE YOU. He tries to convey how annoying it is to be kept waiting, and many readers will relate at the same time they're enjoying Watt's bright, bouncy, autumn-colored cartoon illustrations. Eventually, the rabbit agrees to stop berating the reader if he or she will sign a contract agreeing to stay with the bunny forever. Then he proceeds to have an extended phone conversation with his aunt Beatrice. The last page (WAIT! . . . WAS IT SOMETHING I SAID?) is a witty reminder about the fickleness of attention spans.--Nolan, Abb. Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The title is the accusation/declaration hurled by a mercurial bunny who's peeved that he's been made to wait for readers to show up. "Do you know how RUDE it is to make me wait?" demands the bunny of his audience, as Watt splits her page into four instructional frames. "As rude as talking with my mouth full... As rude as sticking gum under the sofa... As rude as running on carpet with muddy feet... As rude as making faces behind someone's back." (Perceptive readers will recognize that many of the bunny's similes feature common childhood transgressions.) But the bunny, vacillating between anger and apology, is hardly a paragon of polite behavior ("BUT SERIOUSLY, WHERE WERE YOU?" he screams, just one page after cheering readers with a cake, banner, pennant, and dance). And like the rest of the world, he can't resist taking a phone call ("Sure, I'm free to talk-they can wait"). Combining Watt's considerable gifts for metanarrative, social satire, outsize characters, and manic cartooning in one wonderfully silly tale, this is another keeper from a consistently funny talent.
