This book is perfect for whole group read aloud, the children will be engaged the whole time and will be laughing. The story has satires from traditional literature that appeals to a young audience. For example, the author was describing one of the characters and he said, "In fact her skin was so snowy white they called her... Little Red Goldilocks." The references in this book will also be familiar for many children, such as Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, and Goldilocks. Since the book will have familiar characters, the children will be able to make connections with the book, which will also better their comprehension of the book. The illustrations in this book is just as wacky and silly as the story. They have a picture of two bunnies, one is a dad with heart underwear on, and the other is a mom with a skirt and a bikini top and sunglasses. Illustrations like this are perfect for children because of the detail and the silly parts about the picture. I highly suggest this book for parents and teachers to read to their children because it is a good laugh for you and the child. ( )

I liked this book for several reasons. One of the reasons is the characters. Each of the bunnies is "dumb" and does things both literally, and contradictory, making them all entertaining to the reader. Another reason is the illustrations. The illustrations are simple drawings that show the Bunny family as basic, simple drawings, that aren't anatomically correct, allowing the reader to separate the satire from reality. The theme of this book is to "expect the unexpected". ( )

Dumb bunnies are nice when they are cute and soft and nice, but these guys tried to go for like an early Matt Groening aesthetic and it is bad and grimy. ( )

The Dumb Bunnies is a hilarious book, but some may find it's language offensive. Being a parody of other stories, it's easy to mistake this book for schlock and camp, but young readers will be so engaged and eager to point out what The Dumb Bunnies are doing wrong. The book is written in a very children's book style, with simple descriptions and dialogue, but it is abundant with references and double meanings. For example, the cover of the book is a parody of Goodnight Moon, and some of the scenes are pulled straight out of Little Red Riding Hood, but done so in a much more demented way. The plot moves along with a good pace, but the cartoonish artwork is a blast to look and look again at. The Dumb Bunnies certainly isn't for everyone, but if you like to laugh, it is a wonderful children's book. ( )
