This is a wonderfully imaginative story about a pet rabbit who takes advantage of her family's absence. After they leave one afternoon, she slips inside to explore the apartment and experience the things she has longed to try. The illustrations are absolutely hilarious - the rabbit enjoying a treat on the couch, applying lipstick, reading books and playing with toys. The activities are just so un-bunny-like and ridiculous that you can't help but laugh. She leans back on the couch, sitting just like a human would, with a bag of chips wedged between her paws. Right before the family returns, the bunny slips back into her place, hoping to keep her visit a secret. But will she remain undetected? It seems as if she has inadvertently left behind a trail of evidence. The very best part of this book is how it get the readers engaged in imagining the wild things that might happen in their own homes. Does the dog browse the cupboards and eat the best snacks? Does the hamster build block towers and conduct toy car races on the wood floors? The possibilities are endless ....

Sweet book

This is a wonderful book for anyone especially if they own a rabbit as a house pet. Even my 22 year old who does have a house rabbit enjoyed it and loved receiving it as a gift. It's a very sweet and gentle story with beautiful illustrations.

A Kid's Book on the Soft Side

A sweet, softly illustrated children's book that touched my heart. A must have for kids and animal loving adults.

A sweet story about a little rabbit

Children's books about animals are one of my favorites to review -- especially when the main character has a mind of his own :).The book, "While You Were Out," by Ho Baek Lee, is about a little rabbit whose owners forget to lock the door to the balcony. When the little rabbit discovers this, she goes exploring throughout the house. While inside, she finds a lot of fun things to highly recommends this book -- it's short sentences and simple renderings make this story very enjoyable for young children. The ending is sure to leave a trail...pun intended :).

A Story That Makes Them Giggle

This book is just right for my five-year-old bunny loving daughter. It's a simple story of what the pet bunny does when the family leaves, and he sneaks into the house. It's a little reminiscent of Alexandra Day's Carl books, in that when the pet is left alone, he takes on some human characteristics. For instance, this bunny has lunch at the table and tries out roller skating. Very cute- just the right amount of text, a great cuddle up and giggle story.
