Description of this Book

The clothes don't make the bunny in this new picture book from New York Times-bestselling author Deborah Underwood, illustrated by T. L. McBeth. When Ogilvy moves to a new town, the possibilities feel endless. There are so many new bunny friends and fun things to do together! But in this town, bunnies in dresses play ball and knit socks, and bunnies in sweaters make art and climb rocks. Ogilvy wants to do everything--and won't let a sweater or a dress get in the way.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Clothes do not make the bunny. It's a strong message told subtly. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on Ogilvy Bouncy, rhyming text by Underwood (The Panda Problem) lightens direct commentary on the limitations of binaries and outdated standards, while simple lines and knit textures by McBeth (Robot in Love) create a sense of aesthetic cohesion. Seussian in theme and verse, the enjoyable readaloud bears slight semblance to The Sneetches and offers an excellent entry point to conversations about celebrating individuality and personal choice. --Publishers Weekly on Ogilvy
