No Boring Stories Reviews
A picture book about a writing critique group!
A group of animals gathers to write a story together. The bunny tries to join but they reject him as bunnies are in so many cute stories. They stereotype him without listening. They discover he wants to write the same types of adventure stories they do after a lot of sneaking and hiding to join them.

The truly humorous part, is that I read a stack of picture books at the same time as this one, and nearly every single one of them had elements that the "writers' group" sneers at in this story! A fun sto...more
A chock full of story telling, creativity, humor and cooperation. A bit too much going on for my taste.
