Three young rabbits, who are each having a bad day, take a trip to the Bunny Planet, where Queen Janet, listens to them and helps them see a better day—"the day that should have been." Maggie Gyllenhaal reads this book beautifully. Her soothing, nurturing voice mirrors the reassuring text, and her intonation helps the listener feel the characters' emotions. The reading is crisp and clear, and the pacing is perfect for following along with the book. The timing of the page-turn signals allows the listener to take in and enjoy each page. Subtle sound effects enhance the listening experience, and background music draws the listener deeper into the story. The quality of the production ensures this read-along CD will be enjoyed over and over. J.K.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 08]
