Big Rabbit's Bad Mood
Badescu, Ramona. 2009. Big Rabbit's Bad Mood. Illustrated by Delphine Durand. Chronicle Books.
For anyone who has ever had a bad mood--a persistent bad mood, this one is for you. Meet Big Rabbit. A bunny with one bad mood--a bad mood that is big and bad and that follows him here, there, and everywhere. Big Rabbit tries to be good and get rid of it. He tries calling a friend; he tries listening to music; he tries watching tv; he tries eating a snack; but this ONE bad mood that is sticking to him like glue. And not only that, this is a bad mood with BAD habits. (Booger-leaving habits!) After catching his bad mood in the act, he remembers what he hopes will be his cure-all for any and every problem: his mommy! Surely if anyone can make the bad mood disappear it will be his good old pancake-making mommy!!! But even that seems to have failed as he calls and she's too busy for him...at the moment. What's a big rabbit to do? What would you do? Read and see for yourself if this bad mood ever gets vanquished!
