'Mrs. White Rabbit' by Giles Bachelet is a wonderful kids book about the wife of the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland. While he is out running around, what does she do all day?
For one thing, she keeps a diary. She talks about her children. One wants to be a fashion model, the twins seem well behaved, one of the younger ones has brought home a cat that can become invisible, and so on. There really is a lot to do to keep such a large household running, and Mrs. Rabbit feels underappreciated by a husband that is always running away because he is late. Will he even remember her birthday?
The story is cute, but the real winner here are the illustrations. For fans of Alice in Wonderland, there are all kinds of details, like a window for a sporting goods store featuring flamingos and hedgehogs. The classroom illustration is my favorite. There are some weird moments in the illustrations like the twins playing with chamber pots and holding what looks like rabbit scat, but little readers probably don't know what these things are, so call it odd humor.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Wm. B. Eerdman's Publishing Company and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
