Timothy does not want a rabbit. We don't really know why right away, but pretty quickly it is apparent. Timothy has a pet rabbit named Blossom and he is no longer there. The next morning there is a little brown rabbit is on his doorstep and the little boy tries to shoo it away. He tries various things, but he can't seem to rid himself if this adorable brown bunny with one floppy ear, no matter how hard he tries. This book address the tough issue of the death of a beloved pet. It is hard to get over the loss of a pet and you need time to grieve before you get another one. As the days go on and the bunny sticks around the boy's heart opens to this little bunny. Near the end of the book, you find out that Timothy found Blossom dead in his cage. That would be devastating to a young child and I am not sure if that part was necessary or not. I liked that the parents did not try to force Timothy to get a new pet, but let him work through it until he was ready. There is humor and action in the story that children who have never lost a pet will enjoy as well as the reader sharing the story. A good book for any family who are working through this issue with their children.

Super cute story about a determined boy and an equally determined boy. A beautifully illustrated story that shows us that often the thing we don't want is exactly what we need.
