Shylo Tawny-Tail isn’t much to look at. A thin, scrawny, weak-eyed young rabbit, he is the target of much teasing and bullying by his older siblings. But his imagination and quick thinking allow him to dream. He listens to tales of the Royal Rabbits of London, a secret society of rabbits living under Buckingham Palace. Their sworn mission is to protect the Queen and her honor. When Shylo overhears a plot by the evil Ratzis to besmirch the Queen, he is tasked with warning the Royal Rabbits. Trembling and self-doubting, he travels from his country warren to the palace. The Royal Rabbits are strong, fearless, and dedicated. They take Shylo’s information seriously and he becomes part of a team with a hugely important mission. Still fearful, his self-esteem improves as others believe in him. Ultimately, it is Shylo’s sharp nose and smart thinking that ensure success. Shylo is the classic bullied character who comes out on top. The loose and sketchy pen-and-ink drawings bring Shylo, the Royal Rabbits, and the evil Ratzis to life. Frequent mentions of technology may date the story. While this is no Watership Down or Winnie-the-Pooh, Shylo is a memorable character who overcomes bullying and gains self-confidence. VERDICT This would also work well as a bedtime read-aloud.—Lisa Crandall, formerly at the Capital Area District Library, Holt, MI
