Feeling inept in the team sports scheduled for his school's Gymboree, Clyde the rabbit develops his own event, a freestyle tumbling routine with a dazzling move called the "twirly burly.".
Kathryn Lasky is the acclaimed author of more than forty books for children, including VISION OF BEAUTY: THE STORY OF SARAH BREEDLOVE WALKER; and SUGARING TIME, a Newbery Honor Book. She says TUMBLE BUNNIES is "part of the continuing saga of the problems that loom large in the lives of first graders as they try to figure out their world." Marilyn Hafner loves Clyde and was happy to illustrate another book featuring him. "The stories about him," she says, "have the perfect take on the real fears of children as they start to face the world away from home."
