The Bunny family is delighted to find a baby on its doorstep. Only little Dot seems concerned that her new baby brother is a wolf. “He’s going to eat us up!” Dot warns her parents, but they don’t listen. Instead they fuss over and indulge their little son, dressing him in pink footie pajamas with rabbit ears. Wolfie has a voracious appetite—for carrots—and grows so quickly that he soon towers ominously over the entire Bunny family. When Wolfie is threatened by a bear on a trip to the Carrot Patch Co-op, it’s Dot who comes to his rescue and scares the bear away. The gentle humor in both the text and heavy-lined acrylic illustrations make this a not-so-scary tale of the wolf-eat-bunny world of early childhood. (Ages 3–6)
