Never seen a jackalope? Not even sure what one is? Well, you've come to the right place. You'll get the whole wild story right here in this book.
You see, the jackalope didn't start out with horns. First he was a plain old hare. You know, a jackrabbit. The horns came later, along with a corny fairy godrabbit and a cranky coyote. And the trouble those horns brought--hoooo-wee!
With a gut-busting brew of sassy storytelling and outrageous art, Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel finally give the jackalope his due. After all, he's long been part of American legend--isn't it time to tell the real story?

Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel

Ever seen a jackalope?

Probably not, because they're gone. Extinct.

Like dinosaurs and go-go boots.

Ever wonder what happened to them? I know, because two silly sisters told me. They said it was the absolute truth.

So put on your listening ears, zip your lips, and get ready for

And I'll tell you a tale of a hare.

And all of it's true, as best I recall,

    A hare wants to be fierce and intimidating, so he wishes on a star and is granted horns that grow when he lies by a fairy godrabbit that is decked out in vegetables. It is hard to believe this book came from the same team that gave us the wonderful Great Fuzz Frenzy. A weird, sloppy mishmash of fairy tale tropes, an annoying and unnecessary narrator, bad rhyming schemes used inconsistently, puns and sarcasm that would probably go over the heads of the intended audience. Not good.

    This was truly hectic and funny at the same time. It wasn't the frantic rise of action that The Great Fuzz Frenzy was, but still it was well done.

    Summary: Jackalope is about a rabbit who wants to be scary. He always asks his mirror who the scariest of all is and it's never him. He wishes upon a star and a magic fairy comes to him to grant him one wish. This story is about the problems his wish causes and how he finds love and happiness with his normal non-scary appearance. Personal Reaction: I LOVED this book. Such a cute story line and I loved the random vegetable words they used to replace other words such as "lettuce" in replace of let us. This story can be a good book to keep in the classrooms to help children realize the greatness they have with just being themselves. Classroom Extensions:1. Have students make an illustration about the good things about themselves and share with the class after reading this story.2. Have a set of horns(antlers) and to show that lying is bad. Whenever someone lies make them wear it.

    Summary: Jack wasn’t happy with himself so he wished to be scarier. The horns only made others laugh and got him into trouble. Through some hard lessons learned Jack finds happiness with himself and his new friend. Personal: Being happy with yourself is a hard lesson to learn sometimes. There is always someone prettier, smarter, or faster than you are. True happiness comes with contentment, friendship, and love I believe. Oh! Be careful what you ask for; you may just get it. Classroom Extension: Literature: A fun story to teach child children about parables and the lessons they teach.Art: Students of all ages love to play with play dough or clay. Have them come up with their own fantasy creature by combining features of two into one extraordinary creation.Writing: After they make their new creation the students can write a short paragraph telling about the new animal.

     I love the legend of the jackalopes, so I thought I would really like this story. It seems to be a bit disjointed, though. I get the lesson that it's trying to teach (be yourself/love yourself, etc), but jackalope wasn't really any better off as himself. He could have used his antlers to protect himself when he was a jackalope, or he could have had the speed and agility to escape without the antlers. And the antlers only became a problem because he lied (and they grew, a la Pinocchio); if he hadn't lied, he would have had the protection, speed and agility he needed to protect himself from coyote, yet the lesson about not lying is completely glossed over. Whatever.
