It’s 1904, and Luna Park is being built on the sand dunes of Coney Island, Brooklyn. This is bad news for the rabbit Selena, because it will be built right on top of her burrow! Fortunately, she meets Millie, a girl who loves rabbits. She helps Selena cope with the loss of her home.
This magical story weaves together the tale of two friends, and how they confront the men who have destroyed Selena’s home. Against the backdrop of images of Luna Park, the story reaches a dramatic conclusion in nighttime Coney Island!
Take a trip back in time to Luna Park, when for a few pennies you could travel all the way to the moon!

This whimsical book transports readers back to 1904 Coney Island through the eyes of the rabbits whose home was replaced by the amusement park. Though I felt a little sad for the creatures and nature surrounding the park in the beginning, those feelings were soon replaced by the feelings of wonder and adventure that accompany the new park as the rabbits begin to explore their new surroundings. The detailed and glowing illustrations help set this exciting atmosphere and the clever ending ties the story up well.
What drew me to this book was the illustrations. The illustrations are extremely detailed and magical. They truly immerse you into the story; I felt as if I were actually there. I would spend several minutes on each page scanning each and every detail. The characters Millie and Selena are fun and lovable. We accompany Millie and Selena in their trials and adventures as Luna Park comes to life. I like that we get a glimpse of the historical past of Coney Island.
