The basic set up for this one is a rabbit named Burdock is having a picnic out in some rural field somewhere with his parents. Burdock and his father decide to play hide and seek, Burdock tells his mother and asks if he can take his toy rabbit with him. She is hesitant but agrees on the condition he takes care of it. He doesn't however luckily for him the rabbit will inadvertently save him when his deadbeat father doesn't even seem to look for him at all and it starts to get dark.
I really liked the illustrations in this picture book they are colourful and really well drawn, I particularly liked the rabbits, the illustrator was able to make them look fury without drawing heaps of little lines on them. Nicely to the images are large and combined with the text take up the whole page. It would be nice when a day comes that we don't need to praise a children's picture book when the author has taken the time to format it correctly so it takes up the whole screen instead of just a part of it and that the pictures and text are together on the one page. Unfortunately many picture book authors in 2012 take the quick lazy option.
Although only a simple story, it still works. Clever Rabbit is well worth buying.
