Down the Hole

HarperCollins/Clarion. Oct. 2023. 40p. Tr $19.99. ISBN 9780358683346.
PreS-Gr 2–Sly Fox is up to his old business scoping out the bunny hole. However, he doesn’t realize that smart Rabbit has been doing his own planning: a plan to take care of dear old Fox. Rabbit connives until Fox bounces on a hole and meets his demise in the bunnies’ underground tunnel system that happens to be connected to a friend’s hibernation den. Slater’s words put a new spin on Aesop, while Ming’s illustrations provide clues to Rabbit’s fate.
VERDICT A great addition to a study of fables or for any animal story hour; especially recommended for early childhood libraries.
