Bunnies exhibiting human behaviors demonstrate how feeling 'sad' or 'mad' can lead to bad behavior. They may grab, hit, kick, slurp, scream, shout, burp, or fight. The same young bunnies replace their rude actions with positive ones. 'Good bunnies try/ to do what's right./They use their words./They NEVER bite.' They say please, do not tease, follow rules, and give hugs.
"Dewdney's straightforward text, written in short sentences and rhyme, flows well. Full-color artwork effectively captures the facial expressions, conveys the bunnies' changing emotions, and re-creates the activity described in the text. This simple story would be useful to teachers and parents wanting to explore appropriate and inappropriate behavior." - School Library Journal
