Booklist - 02/15/2021 For anyone a bit hazy on the differences between a rabbit and a hare, a tortoise and a turtle, or, for that matter, a hog and a javelina, this cactus-country confab begins to clear things up. In a Sonoran Desert setting drawn in a simple cartoon style, a ground squirrel sitting atop a saguaro greets a furry passerby with “Hello, Rabbit” and gets the indignant rejoinder that “I’m no Flopsy, Mopsy, or Cottontail. I’m a hare.” A succinct disquisition on the differences between rabbit and hare ears, feet, and babies ensues. When a predator attacks with a “GOTCHA, RABBIT!” he gets a punch in the nose and a “So there, Jackal.” (“Technically,” the squirrel points out, “that was a coyote!”) A closing table compares eight other pairs of common animals that are similar but not the same, plus, for extra credit, there's a gallery of Sonoran creatures for readers to go back and spot. Better yet, the animal cast is anthropomorphic enough to suggest a broader discussion with younger audiences of physical differences and similarities. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
