This very imaginative, and beautifully illustrated, book is highly original. It combines library-related paraphernalia with plentiful rabbit-related puns (mostly lost on my children, but they'll get it when they're older) much of which is hidden amongst the front and back blurbs that you might not normally look at with your children. The first ending is a little brutal, though hardly unexpected. The alternative ending is very funny though ludicrous too.
We all love rabbits AND we are all vegetarian, yet my daughters (aged 6, 4 and 2) find this entertaining and are not scared by it. Most importantly for a children's book, it's also really appealing to parents.
We really enjoyed the story because the rabbit didn't notice that there were wolves creeping up on him. It was funny as the rabbit borrowed a book called wolves and the story we read is his story called wolves. We read it as the rabbit reads it. The story builds suspense as the rabbit reads which is great. We thought the little sentences helped to do this.
We thought that the illustrations were fantastic. We liked the combination of line drawings and colourful pictures. All the illustrations were very detailed. We liked the fact that the rabbit's copy of the book showed the same pictures as we saw.
We would really have liked this story to be longer, we thought the rabbit could have run away and there could have been a hunt.
We would recommend this book to any age, children and adults.

The book has some real "cutesy" features, plenty of rabbit puns and it even "borrowed" a few ideas from the jolly post man with its library card and the letter at the back of the book for you to take out and explore, but it just seemed a little flat.
The story was really short, the pictures a bit grainy, though i did like picture where the wolf was used as the tree tops as it showed an originality that the rest of the pictures lacked.
I generally felt a bit short changed by the book, story short and predictable, pictures a bit naf (and I had seen the style used before like in "when the world came to my place" many years before- and other books too.)the rabbit puns were tame and it felt like it had borrowed a few too many other authors ideas and mashed them together.
