B is for brave.
B is for bold.
B is not only for…bunnies.


After his brothers and sisters ruin his favorite alphabet book, Teetu the bunny has had enough of his big bunny family! When he sneaks off into the night, what he discovers is more marvelous than he ever dreamed. He sees animals and trees and beauty and moonlight, and puts his adventures into a new book he creates all by himself. But soon Teetu tires of being alone, and just as it gets to be too much…a big fluffy surprise comes to save the day!

School Library Journal

Avid reader Teetu the bunny feels overwhelmed by the crowding in his burrow and craves solitude to create his own book. Clad in bow tie and suspenders, he takes his backpack and flashlight into the forest. Resident animals observe him sketching and ambling around all day and into the night. When it’s time to head home, the lost and hungry hero is homesick. Luckily, all the bunnies in his extended family have created a chain of rabbits to lead him back, where everyone raves about his animal alphabet book. Lam’s digital illustrations make the most of Ferry’s text. The trees in Teetu’s forest inspire him as the flowing branches form animal shapes, from flamingos to giraffes. In addition, each bunny’s depiction presents a distinct character. Pearl gray backgrounds feature a black, white, and soft red palette. Introverts will relate to Teetu’s dilemma, and the gentle plot demonstrates how nature may stir creativity.

Horn Book

Bunny Teetu, a sensitive soul, craves solitude, but it’s hard to come by in the small burrow he shares with his parents and siblings, aunt, uncle, and cousins. Bunnies are everywhere—even in his alphabet book (“B is for…”). One night, Teetu decides to “break out of the burrow” and embark on a hero’s journey: “B is for brave. B is for bold. B is not only for…bunnies.” With an artist’s eye, he finds the moonlit forest thrilling: “Soon nothing looked familiar. Everything looked different. It was wonderful.” Teetu spends the following day peacefully observing his surroundings and the curious, quiet forest creatures he encounters. “He began writing and sketching and creating. He would make…his own book!” After another night, Teetu becomes “tired. And hungry. And lost.” He’s quickly found by his family, who celebrates his return—and his book. Lam’s elegant and inviting digitally rendered illustrations, which recall linocut prints, feature a contemplative palette of steel gray, slate blue, and black with red accents. The artist effectively uses white space to enhance mood and as a stage for his balletic trees, some of which bend fancifully into wild animal shapes. Unlike the protagonist in Margaret Wise Brown’s Runaway Bunny, Ferry and Lam’s dapper hero, unencumbered by any parental agenda, is free to roam. And to return back home.
