    "This is one of the best books that I have ever read that comes from the animals point of view. There is nothing out there like it. This is a book that should be read by everyone. It will go a long ways in teaching them about civilization as we know it. There are many layers to the book and you will see that as you read it. Its a great read and the author paints a very bright and vivid picture for you. "

    "An great work of early fantasy that stands alongside the likes of Lewis' good friend Tolkien. But, the Christian overtones are sometimes a bit much. That being said, it is stronger as a fantasy novel then as a Christian allegory. Lewis does a much better job discussing Christianity through his essays. Some very cool speculative fiction concepts. Walking into a world contained in a closet and time being warped while you remain there. The talking animals in the novel are not only guides but close friends to the characters. Some of the most memorable anthropomorphic characters in Mr and Mrs Beaver and Azland. "

    "As for best fiction books with talking animals, Black Beauty is a classic tale that takes the cake for many readers young and old. This story was one of Sewell's most legendary in that it took the reader through many different aspects of humanity. It is not simply a story about a talking animal, but one about connecting with living things on another level."

    "My daughter LOVES her "Wabbit" book! We read it every night and she loves to point out things in the pages and have me name them. The pictures are so beautiful and the text is very simple. I agree with a previous reviewer about wanting to frame the pages - I'd LOVE to do my daughter's room in Kevin Henkes Little White Rabbit theme! (Lots of greens, pinks and yellows.) I almost thought it would be too simple, but my daughter stays interested and adds to the story - she "flutters" with the butterflies, points out the sibling rabbit who is still awake, stands and reaches "So Tall!" with the very tall rabbit, she is just very attached to this book (she has had it for 5 months now). I can't say enough great things about the book - we love it! "
