Am I obsessed with disco-related children’s books? Perhaps. A few years back, I found a 25¢ disco hits CD in the library book sale and brought it home to my son for his CD player. (It seems very old school to actually have a CD player these days.) There’s nothing quite like YMCA or KC & the Sunshine Band to get your morning routine going at 6:30 a.m. Maybe disco is just something I find amusing? Hard to say.
All you need to know about this book is that the rabbit totally rocks a John Travolta Saturday Night Fever suit in one panel that isn’t actually part of the story. Who cares? I’m telling you, that picture just wiped clean several hours of unpleasant news and painful, clumsy housework.
And then you throw in a moose shooting lasers from its eyes. Um….YES! And the chickadee is maybe an evil mastermind, but the porcupine is definitely on the dark side. Forest animals, world domination, disco balls. Wow. I just can’t even put into words how much I love this. I hope kids love it, too. Apparently I missed the first book – Laser Moose and Rabbit Boy. You can bet I’ll be tracking it down.
