Annotation: "Guess how much I love you," says Little Nutbrown Hare. Little Nutbrown Hare shows his daddy how much he loves him: as wide as he can reach and as far as he can hop. But Big Nutbrown Hare, who can reach farther and hop higher, loves him back just as much. Well then Little Nutbrown Hare loves him right up to the moon, but that's just halfway to Big Nutbrown Hare's love for him.

Paper engineering by Corina Fletcher. The original text of this popular sentimental picture book is paired with pop-up illustrations. The resulting gift book retains the feel of the original. Large flaps reveal Big Nutbrown Hare reaching up to the sky or swinging Little Nutbrown Hare up off the pages of the book.

The popular bedtime story -- in which Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare try to measure how much they love each other -- has been compressed to fit the board-book format, interfering with its original pacing and rhythm. Much better as a picture book. Copyright 1998 Horn Book Guide Reviews

Little Nutbrown Hare asks his father, ""Guess how much I love you,"" then stretches his arms as wide as they go and says ""This much"" -- but his father's reach is wider. The little hare keeps trying to top his father until he finally murmurs, ""I love you right up to the moon,"" and falls asleep. His father kisses him good-night and whispers, ""I love you right up to the moon -- and back."" Comical and endearing pen-and-ink and watercolor pictures illustrate the pleasant, gentle story.

An abbreviated edition of the story about Little Nutbrown Hare trying to prove how much he loves Big Nutbrown Hare is weakened by the addition of pop-ups and pull tabs to the illustrations. The paper engineering is standard at best (some pages are quite stiff) and adds nothing to the sentiment of the text and the otherwise charming illustrations. Stick with the original edition.

Fresh as a fiddlehead fern in spring, this beguiling bedtime tale features a pip of a young rabbit and his indulgent parent. Searching for words to tell his dad how much he loves him (and to put off bedtime just an eentsy bit longer), Little Nutbrown Hare comes up with one example after another ("I love you as high as I can hop!"), only to have Big Nutbrown Hare continually up the ante. Finally, on the edge of sleep, he comes up with a showstopper: "I love you right up to the moon." (Dad does top this declaration too, but only after his little bunny falls asleep.) Effused with tenderness, McBratney's wise, endearing and droll story is enriched by the near-monochromatic backdrop of Jeram's pen-and-wash artwork, rendered earthy tones of moss, soft brown and gray for a visually quieting effect just right for that last soothing tale before sleep. Ages 3-up. (Mar.) Copyright 1995 Cahners Business Information.

PreS—It's been more than 20 years since readers were first introduced to Little Nutbrown Hare. Since then, countless children have been soothed by Jeram's calming ink and watercolor illustrations and McBratney's simple and tender story about a young rabbit and his parent in an "awww"-inducing competition to explain how much they love one another. The original edition has spawned numerous offshoots, including a board book version, various concept books, book and toy sets, calendars, and pop-up editions. This special anniversary edition includes notes from the author and illustrator looking back over the last two decades and revealing a bit about their creation process. This reissue also features an elegant new dust jacket with gold foil accents, small touches that lend the package a bit of sparkle. This would make a lovely new baby gift, or as a fresh replacement for copies that have been well loved and well used.

PreS-K?In this simple story, a father and son try to outdo one another in expressing their affection. Little Nutbrown Hare says that he loves his father as high as he can reach. Big Nutbrown Hare replies that he loves his son as high as he can reach?which is very high. Father seems to be winning?until the young rabbit tells dad that he loves him right up to the moon?which his father agrees is very far away. But as he kisses his son goodnight, he replies, ``I love you right up to the moon?and back.'' The watercolor illustrations are composed of scratchy lines and large areas of watery washes that are charming, but not too sweet. Large typeface and repetitive refrains invite beginning readers. It's refreshing and realistic to see a father and son relationship that is both competitive and loving.?Karen K. Radtke, Milwaukee Public Library
