ALA Booklist
Once upon a time there were three dumb bunnies who lived in a log cabin made out of bricks. Dedicated to James Marshall, this picture book affectionately parodies the characters from the Stupids series, the plot from Goldilocks and the Three Bears and, in the jacket illustration, the great green room from Good Night, Moon The book jacket will attract any smart aleck who knows the original and enjoys seeing its cozy elements replaced with good-natured zaniness: underpants on the drying rack, a goldfish bowl in the fireplace, lava lamps on the mantle, a bowl of Spam on the table, and dumb bunnies grinning at their audience. Inside, the humor is equally visual, often clever, sometimes just dumb, and scattershot in terms of age level. Fans of the Stupids and fractured fairy tales will like the dumb bunnies, too, but somewhere between the time Baby Bunny cries Somebody's been using my pimple cream and when he flushes Little Red Goldilocks down the toilet, things have pretty well gotten out of hand, never to return. Unsatisfying as a whole, though kids will laugh out loud at some of the funny bits. (Reviewed Jan. 15, 1994)
Kirkus Reviews
This labored effort is obviously meant to be funny, but it's more in the goofball style of Beavis and Butthead than an entry in the ranks of fractured fairy tales by such masters as Scieszka/Lane or James Marshall. Dedicated to the latter, this is a sort of ``The Stupids Meet Goldilocks,'' illustrated with Marshallesque settings and characters. The Dumb Bunnies (Momma, in bra-top and skirt, is ``really dumb''; Poppa, in polka dot briefs, ``even dumber''; Baby Bunny is ``the dumbest bunny of all'') leave their wrong-temperature porridge for an outing that includes a picnic inside a working carwash and bowling in the public library while a librarian glares. They come home to flush ``Little Red Goldilocks'' down the toilet. One problem here is that these bunnies aren't out of step in a well-ordered universe; their world is occupied by similarly witless souls. A sign advertising a spelling bee is misspelled; when Momma Bunny notes that someone has been eating her bed, someone has. The lava lamps in a jacket send-up of the Good Night Moon room will be funny to adults, as will several of the other props (some may even notice the pun in lieu of the author's real name). But let's not elevate this by calling it wit—at best, it's harmless silliness. (Picture book. 5-7)"
School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-A cross between Harry Allard's ``The Stupids'' (Houghton) and a fractured fairy tale. A moronic rabbit family lives in a ``log cabin made out of bricks,'' bowls a game of baseball at the public library, and has lunch in a car wash. While they are out, their home is invaded by Little Red Goldilocks. Poppa Bunny wears red polka-dotted jockey shorts and Momma wears a short skirt and bra. Poppa, Momma, and Baby Bunny all have very prominent overbites. Many of the jokes require a degree of sophistication beyond that of average primary graders: the Bunnies drive a Yugo, Baby Bunny uses a pimple cream called Zit-B-Gone, and Momma sings ``Feelings'' and wears butterfly wing glasses. Book titles at the library include The Condo that Jack Subleased, Pair `O Dice Lost, The Second to the Last of the Mohicans, and Moby Richard. Some of the slapstick humor will appeal to youngsters, e.g., pouring porridge down pants and on heads, ice skating on the bottom of an unfrozen lake, letting Baby Bunny drive the car, and flushing Little Red Goldilocks down the toilet. The most appreciative audience for this title, however, will be older students who grew up with the Stupids and now have the experience to appreciate the more subtle visual humor.-Eunice Weech, M.L.
