About this Book
A triumphant and endearing tale to tickle the smallest listeners.

A very small bunny wants to join the circus and is not put off by a sign reading “Small Animals Need Not Apply.” Though he is too small to wipe his nose or tie his shoes or walk far without a rest, he is not too small to make a BIG impression on the lion, the orangutan, and the other big animals of this circus troupe. This buoyant little tale is at turns funny, endearing, clever—and just right for the smallest child in any family. The brief text and expressive illustrations are great fun to share with a preschooler.
