Lollopy is Sophie's toy rabbit. He has long, lollopy ears, arms and legs. One day, Sophie goes to the wood and, by mistake, leaves Lollopy behind. An exciting night is in store for Lollopy when he is found by three rabbits who try to make Lollopy join in their games - without success.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- Warned not to go into the woods alone, Sophie takes her stuffed rabbit Lollopy along for protection. When she goes bluebell picking, she leaves Lollopy behind overnight, and some live bunnies find him. Disappointed in the toy's lifelessness, they carry him to the middle of the woods, where he loses some of his stuffing and an ear. Mama Rabbit, patching him, warns her bunnies that they wouldn't be so easy to mend. The next day, Sophie and her mother find the toy, complete with a bluebell chain necklace made by the rabbits. The theme of separation and reunion assures young readers' genuine connection to the story; meanwhile an easy resolution keeps the tone from getting heavy. The issue of a parent's concern for her children's safety is perfectly reflected in wistful watercolor illustrations with pen-and-ink detail. The text is adequate; simple and direct, it leaves readers enough space for their own reactions and emotions. A few Briticisms increase the charm and won't confuse American readers. Varley's full-color art is reminscent of Shepard's work in Winnie the Pooh , and many children will be reminded of Williams's The Velveteen Rabbit . Like those works, this one explores fantasy's relationship to reality. Such associations work to this endearing book's advantage, and may even give it more impact than it deserves. --Liza Bliss, formerly at Leominster Public Library,

From Kirkus Reviews:

An appealing story with a plot that's sort of a cross between The Velveteen Rabbit and Blueberries for Sal: Since she's not supposed to go into the woods alone, Sophie takes her toy bunny (Lollopy) with her, but forgets him while she's picking bluebells. Lollopy is discovered by real little rabbits, who take him deeper into the woods (where they're not supposed to go) and drop him after frightening each other with ``Bogey-Rabbit'' stories. Next day, Lollopy's ear is torn--a fox? Mother Rabbit mends him and leaves him by a tree; Sophie and her mother come back, find him, and are puzzled: `` `Who could have patched him up?' `And who made him a bluebell chain?' '' Varley's pen-and- watercolor illustrations are a gentle and expressive match for the graceful, economical text. (Picture book. 3-7) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
