Too Many Carrots

by Katy Hudson
Illustrated by Katy Hudson

The bestselling picture book that Publisher's Weekly calls "simultaneously sassy and sweet." Rabbit loves carrots and that's a big problem! In this phenomenal bestseller, Rabbit loves carrots a little too much. In fact, his carrots are crowding him out of his cozy burrow. When his friends offer to help, they're just asking for trouble, a lot of trouble! This charming and lovingly illustrated children's book, by acclaimed author Katy Hudson (A Loud Winter's Nap and Bear and Duck), shows how friendships get us over the rough spots in life, even if the going gets a little bumpy. Too Many Carrots is the perfect springtime, Eastertime, and anytime gift.

School Library Journal - Mindy Hiatt, Salt Lake County Library Services, UT

"Hudson’s watercolor and ink illustrations are sprinkled with fun details. . . .The critters’ faces are as expressive as they are cute, adding feeling to the dialogue-heavy storytelling. Children will empathize with Rabbit’s need to collect and keep his favorite things near him at all times. They may even think a bit about sharing, the ultimate message of the book. This entertaining addition is suitable for sharing one-on-one or in a group." - School Library Journal

Publishers Weekly

"Hudson (Bear and Duck) handily juggles profuse visual humor and a passel of life lessons, including taking only what you need, sharing what you have, and not taking advantage of friends. . . .Simultaneously sassy and sweet, Hudson’s illustrations place her cast of cuddly, expressive animals in a variety of slapstick situations. . . .When life gives you carrots, Hudson suggests, make carrot cake (and juice and soup and cupcakes)." - Publishers Weekly
