Surf’s up—watch out! Here comes another funny, frolicking read-aloud from the creators of Bunnies on the Bus.

Bunnies in a boat!
Bunnies in a boat!
Dashing and a-splashing!
Let’s hope they stay afloat!

There are bunnies in a boat, and they’re causing a maelstrom in Sunny Bay! The Sunny Town creatures are all out to play in the surf and sand when, whoosh, there goes a speedboat full of bunnies. Watch them crash into a sandcastle, whisk the sails off boats, zip their way to the airport, and run for the plane’s cockpit . . . oh no! Philip Ardagh’s rollicking, rhyming text is a joy to read aloud, while Ben Mantle’s colorful visual gags and zany details make this a story kids will be bouncing to read over and over.

Praise For…

Readers should prepare for a fast-moving adventure when a fluffle of rabbits embarks on a high-seas adventure. . . a raucously fun read and one that storytellers will make the most of, as the action only gets more dramatic from here on. . . . The ending hints at the possibility of a sequel, which should delight many a reader. . . . Harebrained fun that will leave you giggling.
