Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* The saga of Knuffle Bunny concludes in this droll, observant, and seriously heartbreaking ode to growing up. Trixie's a little older now, sporting a shorter haircut, a backpack, and, of course, ratty old Knuffle Bunny. Destination: Holland, the home of beloved grandparents Oma and Opa. Riding in a plane is exciting (watching Knuffle Bunny go through the X-ray machine is a little scary, though), and soon Trixie is sipping chocolate milk with her extended family. Well, you can guess what readers discover next: Knuffle Bunny has been left on the plane. What you might not guess is the poignancy and nuance of everything that follows. The plane, off to China, isn't coming back. There's no hysterics this time, just a wide-eyed Trixie dealing with the tension of knowing she is at a milestone of maturation yet afraid to fully commit. Her tour of Holland is alternately happy and sad (the replacement robot bunny that says, Ik Kan Spreken! doesn't help much) until a gorgeous four-page foldout dream of Knuffle Bunny's life in the wider world puts Trixie at ease. The denouement is enough to give you goose bumps, and young children may be wiping the tears from their parents' cheeks. Good night, Knuffle Bunny.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this poignant vacation-themed conclusion to Willems's Knuffle Bunny series, Trixie accidentally forgets her beloved stuffed toy on an international flight, as she travels from Brooklyn to Holland with her parents to visit her Dutch grandparents. Willems emphasizes the way Trixie handles the crisis with all the maturity she can muster: "Trixie tried to enjoy going to the cafe and the swings in the playground," but "[s]he missed her Knuffle Bunny." Her knowing grandparents note "how big she was getting. Trixie understood. She was getting bigger. Even if she wished she wasn't." Willems's color caricatures, superimposed on grayscale photos, track Trixie's shifting moods and resolve, and a gatefold pictures Trixie's cathartic dream of the rabbit meeting other children worldwide. In the previous books, the prodigal Knuffle Bunny always returns, and Trixie always needs him. Here, a growing Trixie proves capable of letting go and, when the rabbit reappears, she chooses the terms of their good-bye. Willems's affectionate saga comes to a reassuring end, letting readers know they can release the treasured objects of childhood without losing their identities or their families' love. Ages 3-7.
