62. Bear and Bunny (Candlewick, December 8, 2015)
Daniel Pinkwater & Will Hillenbrand
(Kindergarten-Grade 3)

From the inimitable Daniel Pinkwater comes a funny and disarmingly sweet tale of two forest friends musing on the nature of a good pet.

The bear and the bunny are friends who like to wander in the woods, look for things to eat, sing songs, and talk things over. One day, the bunny asks the bear, "Why do we not have some kind of pet?" Well, the bear is not sure what a pet is. So the bunny explains that it’s an animal that you take care of and feed, and one that loves you. After a much-needed nap in the forest, will these two find their perfect pet?


"A wonderful storytime addition."

School Library Journal (Starred review)

"Whimsical, pretty, and endearing."


Kirkus Reviews

"Mr. Pinkwater again teams up with illustrator Will Hillenbrand for a beautifully paced, neatly written story of two forest friends and their somewhat confused ideas about the world."


—The Wall Street Journal
