Mr.Rabbit and the Lovely Present

Charlotte Zolotow
pictures by Maurice Sendak 1962

Well, it's time for some bunny books. Here's an odd little story with soft illustrations by Maurice Sendak. The style of these pictures seems so different from his other books.

The story is about a little girl who wants to find a birthday present for her mother. She asks Mr. Rabbit for help and help her he does. They go through all the colors that the girl's mother likes and find the right sort of things to give her.

"I would like to give her something that she likes," said the little girl.
"Something that she likes is a good present," said Mr. Rabbit.
