Nothing says a mother's love is unconditional like THE RUNAWAY BUNNY.  No matter, what phases they go through, wherever they go, whatever they do a mother's love will be a source of security, guidance and comfort to our "little bunnies".   (I hope mine know that.) The vivid double-page paintings that open on every other odd numbered page capture the vivid imagination of the little bunny and the full-blown creativity of his mother's love.  Where there is a will there is a way and love always finds a way!  I am thankful that Margaret Wise Brown put pen to paper to express this wonderful truth and that Clement Hurd did such a wonderful job of illustrating with his sketches and paintings.  Did you notice the portrait of the runaway bunny on the wall in OVER THE MOON and the cow jumping over the moon portrait on the wall in THE RUNAWAY BUNNY?
