Grumbly, droopy, dreamy bunnies. They don't want to get out of bed. They don't want to brush their teeth and go to school. They want to sleep. . . warm and deep beneath the covers on their beds. They don't want to tie their shoes or eat oatmeal. They don't want to play on the jungle gym. . .well, maybe for a while. Perhaps toss a ball, or play in mud. Learning how to dance and sing, or adding up numbers, or drawing pictures isn't such a bad thing. When evening comes, and grumbly bunnies have full tummies and comfy jammies, they march to bed. Warm and deep beneath the covers, they dream of the day ahead. Whimsical, playful illustrations in bright, wake-up colors enhance this charming verse, following grumbly bunnies throughout an energizing day. So they aren't morning bunnies, but who could resist a beautiful, sunny day with lots to do and games to play?
Willy Welch is an actor, singer, songwriter, and storyteller. His first book, PLAYING RIGHT FIELD (Scholastic), is also a song recorded by over twenty different performing artists, including Peter, Paul and Mary. Many people are familiar with the story/song as a double-Clio award-winning Pizza Hut commercial! Among Willy's eclectic writing projects have been over thirty songs for Barney (that big, purple dinosaur that every child knows and loves), and a rock-a-billy version of "The Two Gentlemen of Verona" performed by the Shakespeare Festival of Dallas. Willy lives in Dallas, Texas, with his wife and children.
