A hilarious romp about a bunny who just can't seem to listen. He is constantly confusing instructions. For example, when his parents ask for a slice of bread, he saws off a piece of his bed. But everything changes when he takes a wrong turn and meets up with Scruffy Varmint.

This is one of my all-time favorite children's books! I have to admit, it's because I love to read it aloud with my "Scruffy Varmint" voice. The rhythm of the book is great and the way Buddy always messes everything up is hilarious. I've read this to classes before and gotten those great big wonderful belly laughs. I try to let them guess from the pictures what Buddy thinks he hears. On top of that, it really is a good lesson about how not listening to your parents can literally lead you down dangerous paths! I only wish more people knew this book!
