I liked this book much better than I was expecting to. The mystery wasn't patronizingly easy, nor was it so obscure that it would have taken me three days to figure it out so I could explain it to the kids. It is long enough to seem like a "real" book to the early readers.

I have mixed feelings about the illustrations. First of all, they aren't a style that I care for much, so that undoubtedly colored my feelings. I actually did find some of them quite likable, but others just seemed like clip art in the hands of someone who is good with computers. I don't think that will matter much to the kids, however.

Enjoyed the storyline, pictures were interesting and went well with the story. Very quick, fast paced read for small children to enjoy. I liked that the story made a statement and will be looking into the others in the series!

Hmmm – not sure where the 'funny and insightful', nor the bit about 'life lessons', relates to this book.  Its very basic adventure is of a girl and a rabbit who seems a lot smarter than her, investigating the repeated theft of some old woman's birds' eggs.  Pleasant enough, but one to borrow first, especially as there's destined to be quite a series of these.  Two and a half stars.
