Teetu, a darling, suspender-clad rabbit, has a problem: he is simply surrounded by too many bunnies. His innumerable family members share a cozy but slightly claustrophobic burrow, and he can't seem to find a moment away from other rabbits—even his favorite alphabet book informs him that B is for bunny. When his younger siblings, in their excitement, eat his book, Teetu reaches his breaking point and sneaks off on his own solo adventure. While he relishes the blessed quiet of the wilderness, he eventually finds himself lost and longing for the familiar. Never fear: his fuzzy family arrives to save the day, and Teetu is pleased to return home with a newfound appreciation for his boisterous clan. Ferry's appealing story is complemented by Lam's eye-catching illustrations that combine cute cartoon bunnies with more sophisticated woodcut-like backgrounds. (Look out for hidden shapes in the trees!) Readers from large families will particularly relate to the need for space, even while loving their families. Grades K-2. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

Bunny Teetu, a sensitive soul, craves solitude, but it’s hard to come by in the small burrow he shares with his parents and siblings, aunt, uncle, and cousins. Bunnies are everywhereâ€"even in his alphabet book (“B is for...”). One night, Teetu decides to “break out of the burrow” and embarks on a hero’s journey: “B is for brave. B is for bold. B is not only for...bunnies.” With an artist’s eye, he finds the moonlit forest thrilling: “Soon nothing looked familiar. Everything looked different. It was wonderful.” Teetu spends the following day peacefully observing his surroundings and the curious, quiet forest creatures he encounters. “He began writing and sketching and creating. He would make...his own book!” After another night, Teetu becomes “tired. And hungry. And lost.” He’s quickly found by his family, who celebrates his returnâ€"and his book. Lam’s elegant and inviting digitally rendered illustrations, which recall linocut prints, feature a contemplative palette of steel gray, slate blue, and black with red accents. The artist effectively uses white space to enhance mood and as a stage for his balletic trees, some of which bend fancifully into wild animal shapes. Unlike the protagonist in Margaret Wise Brown’s Runaway Bunny, Ferry and Lam’s dapper hero, unencumbered by any parental agenda, is free to roam. And to return back home.

Teetu feels like the odd bunny out in his big, often boisterous family; he can't find even a corner of the crowded burrow that he can call his own. "There were so many bunnies./ It. Wasn't. Even. Funny," writes Ferry (Caveboy Crush). Even Teetu's new alphabet book doesn't offer an escape: "B IS FOR BUNNY" it proclaims. Badly in need of a bunny break, Teetu sneaks out into the world beyond the burrow, where "everything looked different./ It was wonderful." Inspired by the wildlife he sees and the gracefully undulant trees that he imagines to be an armadillo, hippo, and giraffe, among other animals, Teetu is inspired to create a bunny-less book of his own. But with his new sense of independence comes a realization that a loving home, however tight the quarters, isn't so bad after all; when his family creates a "chain of bunnies" to lead him back, Teetu realizes that B can stand for "belonging," too. Graphic designer Lam makes an impressive debut, with a quirky, capsule-shaped cast and striking grayscale digital images, punctuated by splashes of red and letterpress textures. Ages 4–8. (Feb.)
