Book Description

Feb. 1 2011
A zany picture book that will resonate with anyone who's ever been kept waiting. The latest from the creator of the best-selling Scaredy Squirrel series stars a hilariously needy and impatient bunny. This is no ordinary picture-book character, and it will quickly become clear that this is no ordinary picture book ? namely because you, the reader, are on the spot. You're late! At first, this little bunny is deliriously excited by your arrival, but now that you're finally here, he wants to know: where were you? He's been waiting long enough to learn an accordion solo, among other time-consuming pursuits. After he's shown you how it feels to be kept waiting and just when he's finally satisfied that you're a good steady page-turner who's here to stay, something happens to turn the tables. The result is an off-beat ending worth waiting for!

It was very cute, my kids thought it was funny! It would have been nice if there were less comic reading boxes. But it was very good. Perfect for young aged kids between 3-5 years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great new book from Chester and Scaredy Squirrel author March 10 2011
By Jennifer Donovan - Published on Amazon.com
Have you ever wondered what the characters in your favorite books are doing while you're off doing your homework, or watching TV, or surfing the web?

Melanie Watt tackles this question in You're Finally Here!

When you open the book, the bunny asks, "Where were you?" He wants to be happy to see you, but he really wants to know what you've been doing all that time, and how he's suffered. He makes sure we know how long he's been waiting, how boring it is, how unfair and rude and annoying it is.

As he's giving examples of this, any kid will be able to relate (or laugh at) his examples: as annoying as a toilet paper stuck to your shoe, as unfair as being the last kid picked for the team, as rude as sticking gum under the sofa.

This book will make booklovers and silly kids smile.

3.0 out of 5 stars The bunny falls flat March 21 2011
By J. Prather - Published on Amazon.com
Okay, the bunny is cute and usually I love picture books that directly engage the reader, but this one just went a bit too far. Bunny lost a bit of his charm after the third panel of "as rude as..." and "annoying as...." Enough! I get it already. Just not enough funny moments to sustain it as a read aloud, and the whole idea of a contract between the reader and our little furry friend will be lost on most kids. Bunny turns into a phone crazy teenager at the end and the whole book kind of left me scratching my head wondering what age group this one would be best suited for. I don't believe it will make much connection with preschoolers and will probably be far too simple for older kids. This one falls a bit flat for me and is not a recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Where are you finally? March 15 2011
By C. Wagner - Published on Amazon.com
This book was hyped with an actual "lay down" date, slick pictures, and distribution.
I personally found the book a bit tedious. So, I tried it out with my kindergarten student I work with for a civic club.
His attention did not stick with the material and he was clearly disinterested half way through the text.
The plot is, perhaps, simple. The ending was not unexpected.
This is the type of book you may wish to check out from the library first and try it out with your read-to-child prior to actually popping for the $15.99 retail.
