Surf’s up—watch out! Here comes another funny, frolicking read-aloud from the creators of Bunnies on the Bus.

Bunnies in a boat!
Bunnies in a boat!
Dashing and a-splashing!
Let’s hope they stay afloat!

There are bunnies in a boat, and they’re causing a maelstrom in Sunny Bay! The Sunny Town creatures are all out to play in the surf and sand when, whoosh, there goes a speedboat full of bunnies. Watch them crash into a sandcastle, whisk the sails off boats, zip their way to the airport, and run for the plane’s cockpit . . . oh no! Philip Ardagh’s rollicking, rhyming text is a joy to read aloud, while Ben Mantle’s colorful visual gags and zany details make this a story kids will be bouncing to read over and over.

BUNNIES IN A BOAT is an absolutely delightful, silly, and rhyming picture book that will charm young readers. The book begins with some bunnies renting a speedboat and wreaking havoc around the water and the beach. They then get a truck that they take to the airport, making trouble on a plane.

What I loved: This book really tickles the funny bone for young readers and will create plenty of giggles. The story is simple, cute, and perfectly silly with jokes that even little ones will get and enjoy. Each illustration is vivid and very detailed with plenty of humor all around. There are so many things going on with each page that readers will love finding and laughing about. These bunnies are making a mess all around the beach before taking their silliness to the airport. The ending illustration on the plane is a particular favorite in our house with so many bunnies being silly and making messes that children cannot help but giggle.

The text rhymes with a repeating refrain that only adds to the fun and makes the story roll off the tongue well. The font is clear and easy to read throughout, making this a great choice for caregivers to share with little ones who love to laugh.

Final verdict: BUNNIES IN A BOAT is a delightfully silly picture book that is sure to make young readers laugh out loud with its clever and detailed illustrations and rhyming text.
