Rabbit has too many carrots, which overtake his house. When he tries to move in with friends, more chaos ensues. Will Rabbit learn to change his selfish ways?

(synopsis from Goodreads)

Rabbit has so many carrots! He stores them in his burrow, but that means he has nowhere to sleep. So he goes in search of a new house. Unfortunately, he takes his carrots with him, and those veggies end up destroying the homes of all of his friends until, finally, everybody is homeless... except for Rabbit. Will he find a way to make up for his carrot-hoarding selfishness?

The pictures are quite cute, but I wasn't really a fan of the story. Rabbit's obsession with his carrots grew grating after a while. I also didn't like how Rabbit was shown climbing into Tortoise's shell. That's not how it works.

If you're a fan of Hudson's artwork, check this one out for the illustrations. But if you're looking for books about friendship and overcoming selfish tendencies, you might want to look elsewhere.
