“* Cleverly wrapped in an entertaining package, the zen-type morals are edifying but not preachy and serve to genuinely enrich the stories.” ―The Horn Book, STARRED REVIEW
“Himmelman simplifies his picture-book style with calligraphic black lines and delivers a series of Zen lessons touched with gentle humor.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“Himmelman tells delightful short stories about a little bunny named Isabel, who is mighty in spirit . . . makes for a good read-aloud.” ―School Library Journal
“Spare ink illustrations appear on every page, skillfully balancing humor, bunjitsu action, and understated grace. Like Isabel herself, this one’s a winner in unexpected ways.” ―Publishers Weekly
