Cute

It is tempting to pretend to be someone you're not, as most of us know. In this book Marije Tolman and Lida Dijkstra present us with a cute rabbit who aspires to a quite different role. Remaining who you really are is the principal message here. Written in short and clear sentences, illustrated in colourful spreads that look like paintings.

Reviews

"The "cute" illustrations reinforce the "just be yourself" message by highlighting Toby's hilarious transformation from "cute" rabbit to demon biker. Indeed, from the end pages featuring cameos of Toby strutting his stuff to the domestic details of Toby's rabbit home, this one's just plain cute."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Softly hued illustrations are the highlight of this slight selection. They are filled with minute details of life in Toby's community. The animals, their homes, and the fields of wildflowers are charming."
-School Library Journal
