When three wishes lands at his feet, Rabbit asks his best friends, Mouse, Fox, and Bear, what they would wish for, asking himself each time “Is this wish for me?” When he finally makes the choices for his wishes, he wonders if he did it right and his friends show him how right he was.
Saunders' dreamy illustrations are the biggest seller – kids who love day-dreaming over illustrations will fall in love. Sauders’ poetry follows a rhyme scheme, but no particular meter, which helps it read aloud smoothly without turning into a sing-song recitation. Rabbit is a kind friend – a great example!
