Picking up where Blue Rabbit and Friends left off, Blue Rabbit is pedaling along on his bicycle looking for adventure. Unfortunately he does not pay attention to the road! He crashes into a rock and the wheel spins off his bicycle and rolls away. While searching for the missing wheel, Blue Rabbit meets some angry animals along the way who are upset because a strange "whizzing" thing has knocked them all down. As each animal tells his sorry tale, Blue Rabbit has a growing suspicion of just what this mysterious object may be. Will the hapless Blue Rabbit find his wheel in time to make a quick getaway?
Illustrated with the author's highly-praised linocut artwork, this is a marvelous follow-up to Blue Rabbit's previous outing, Blue Rabbit and Friends, called in a starred School Library Journal review, "A simple treat from an author who knows how children's minds work."

PreS-Wormell's distinctive linoleum block prints are strong enough to carry the somewhat wispy text of this follow-up to Blue Rabbit and Friends (Penguin Putnam, 2000). In this adventure, the rabbit is riding his bicycle when he runs into a rock and dislodges one of the wheels. As he looks for it, he meets Squirrel, Badger, and Tortoise. All have been knocked down or distressed by something "whizzing" by. The three innocent victims of mild mayhem follow a trail that resembles a tidy, but wayward ribbon of chocolate toothpaste, and discover that their mishaps have been caused by the errant wheel. The others brand the bunny "Reckless Rider," but he escapes their wrath by riding off on his freshly repaired bicycle. This tale is not for the safety shelf, but will be a crowd pleaser for the three-and-under set. The timeless, boldly outlined illustrations exist in a landscapeless, twilight world that will appeal to preschoolers.-Sue Sherif, Fairbanks North Star Borough Public Library, AK
