Review - Big Bunny

Big Bunny
by Rowboat Watkins
Date: 2018
Publisher: Chronicle Books (CA)
Reading level: C
Book type: picture book
Pages: 40
Format: e-book
Source: library

Once upon a time there was a book about . . .
Nope . . . a BUNNY!
Um . . . well, maybe it was a tiny bit big.

From the curious mind of Rowboat Watkins comes a ginormously imaginative story that is as funny as it is philosophical. How big is Big Bunny? And how will this story end? Delightfully meta and humorously subversive, Big Bunny will take its place as the next go-to story about stories.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

I think this falls into the following category: "for the easily amused". I found the constant interruptions and absurdity of the plot annoying, and even the twist at the end didn't really save it for me. Maybe kids would enjoy this one; I don't know. But as an adult reader, I thought it was a bit tiresome.

The illustrations are kind of cute, but nothing special. I probably wouldn't recommend this one.

Premise: 2/5
Meter: n/a
Writing: 2/5
Illustrations: 3/5
Originality: 3/5

Enjoyment: 2/5

Overall: 2.33 out of 5
