Borrow
Join Bunny for a top-secret trip to the library in a story that celebrates the love of reading.

Bunny loves to sit outside the library with the kids and listen to summer story time. But when the weather gets cold and everyone moves inside, his daily dose of joy is gone. Desperate, Bunny refuses to miss out on any more reading time and devises a plan to sneak into the library at night . . . through the library's book drop!

What follows is an adorable caper that brings an inquisitive, fuzzy bunny and his woodland pals up close and personal with the books they have grown to love. A warm celebration of the power of books, Bunny's Book Club is sure to bring knowing smiles to any child, parent, teacher, bookseller, and librarian who understands the one-of-a-kind magic of reading.
"A sweet salute to reading."—Kirkus
"Silvestro's debut picture book is a love letter to the pleasures of reading and libraries, and Mai-Wyss's colorful illustrations are endearing and comforting . . . A lovely and fun addition for every library."—School Library Journal

"[Annie Silvestro] makes the pleasures of reading abundantly clear."—Publishers Weekly

"Mai-Wyss' soft, muted watercolor scenes sprinkled with charming, expressive cuddly animals is the perfect complement to Silvestro's enchanting story about the love of books."—Booklist

    Bunny, a rabbit, has been eavesdropping on the local library’s outdoor story time and fallen in love with how books can spark an array of adventures: “As he listened, Bunny imagined himself climbing mountains... captaining a ship... ruling a kingdom.” But now that it’s sweater weather, and story time has moved indoors, what will Bunny do? The answer isn’t exactly legal (book return slots are intended for books, after all) and it gets a little out of hand (pretty soon Bunny’s friends all want in on his after-hours library excursions). But the librarian turns out to be forgiving where these trans-species bibliophiles are concerned, and since “All libraries have rules,” Bunny and his accomplices end up with their own library cards. Debut author Silvestro can sometimes be too literal and earnest (“He followed his nose to the adventure section”), but she makes the pleasures of reading abundantly clear. Mai-Wyss (The Passover Lamb) smartly divides the storytelling into small, telling moments, amplifying each vignette with a fine eye for detail and warmhearted humor. Ages 3–7. Author’s agent: Liza Voges, Eden Street Literary.

    A bunny who loves books finds a cunning way to build his own library.Bunny has loved books ever since he heard the lady with red glasses reading to kids outside of the library. But when summer is over and storytime is moved back inside, Bunny is bereft. He needs stories! The solution--the library book drop! He is able to wriggle inside the library, where the shelves are bursting with books--better than a field of fresh carrots. Plus, he can take books home with him by dropping them back through the book drop. He returns to the library each night, and soon his burrow is overrun with books. Help arrives when his friends join in the nighttime raids: Porcupine, Bear, Squirrel, Raccoon, Frog, Mole, and Mouse. Things are going well until the librarian, a young, brown-skinned woman with cornrows, catches the animals in the act one night. "All libraries have rules," she admonishes but then gives them each a new library card so they can borrow and return the books. Voila, the titular book club is born. The cover image of the animals reading in and under a tree is enticing, and the cozy illustrations are appealing. The humans included in the pictures are nicely diverse, and the book design is clever with a book pocket and card on the endpaper. A sweet salute to reading. (Picture book. 3-5)

    PreS-Gr 1-For book lovers, there is nothing better than a day snuggled deep in a comfortable chair reading a new book from the library. In this cozy tale, several woodland animal friends discover the pleasures of just such a day thanks to a bunny with a passion for books. Bunny falls in love with books during the warm days of summer when storytime is held on the library steps. Soon, Bunny is transported to faraway places and is experiencing the world-as captain of a pirate ship and ruler of a kingdom-as never before. When storytime moves inside, Bunny is bereft. To satisfy his hunger for books, Bunny returns to the library at night and learns that although the library is locked, the book return slot is open. Before long, Bunny spends all his time reading, and his friends are mystified by his absence. When Bunny divulges his secret, eight of the woodland friends sneak into the library together and are caught by the librarian. Rather than being busted, they are given library cards. So begins Bunny's Book Club. Silvestro's debut picture book is a love letter to the pleasures of reading and libraries, and Mai-Wyss's colorful illustrations are endearing and comforting-who wouldn't want to be friends with this group of open-minded and curious pals? There are cute details throughout, including a re-creation of an old library pocket on the inside cover of the book. VERDICT A pleasant addition for large picture book collections.-Sally James, South Hillsborough Elementary School, CA
