What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Big Rabbit has a mood. A bad mood. A mood with attitude. A big, disgusting mood that won’t leave him alone. What’s a rabbit to do? <p/>He tries watching TV, but the bad mood is on every channel. He tries making a salad, but the bad mood is un-ignorable, lying on his sofa, eating chips and wiping his boogers on the rug. Whatever will make it go away? <p/>The unusual portrayal of a bad mood as a creature that can’t be banished will make kids giggle. Combined with a silly sense of humor and a very real sense of what it’s like to want to shake off a grumpy feeling, this book will resonate with readers of every mood.

What Do Critics Say About This Book

  • “Durand’s simple, quirky images are at their best depicting the bad mood’s antics, which they do with gusto. Great concept, but in practice somewhat strange, and the adult sensibility could be alienating.”

  • “While Durand’s illustrations of Big Rabbit’s attempts to get rid of a bad mood will have readers giggling, the resolution of the conflict is disappointing.”
