What reviewers are saying about the Rabbit & Bear series:
“The lessons here are serious, but the irreverent text is uproariously funny, full of scatological humor and wild postulating. Field’s illustrations are the perfect pairing, capturing the wild-eyed panic alongside the sheer adorableness of the characters. A wonderfully silly tale that fits important lessons among literal poo humor.” — Booklist
"The narrative, laid out in short, well-leaded lines, likewise snuggles on every page with Field’s duotone cartoon scenes of the two furry figures meeting, parting, starting separate snowmen but ultimately coming together to finish one, and finally sharing a honeycomb and other goodies before bedding down in the warm den." – Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
"Rabbit's Bad Habits is a breath of fresh air in children’s fiction, a laugh-out-loud story of rabbit and wolf and bear, of avalanches and snowmen. The sort of story that makes you want to send your children to bed early, so you can read it to them.” — Neil Gaiman
"Rabbit's Bad Habits should become an instant modern classic. Stands shoulder to shoulder with Pooh and Toad. Cheeky, delightful and hilarious." – Eoin Colfer
"Whether it’s the grisly truth about leporidae eating their poo, the hilarious, touching dynamic between big, gentle Bear and cantankerous, selfish—but not irredeemable—Rabbit, or Jim Field’s blue-white, deft and atmospheric images, there’s much to love in this splendid little book." – The Guardian
"A delight, with super illustrations and a lovely story about friendship." – Independent on Sunday
"A laugh-out-loud celebration of friendship, forest life…and poo." – Metro
"This beginning chapter book is delightfully weird, hilarious, and tender-hearted!" – Imagination Soup
