Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: It's very amusing the casual way Aril accepts talking rabbits that dress up. In fact, one can argue that the plot of the story is really about how Aril wants to be friends with Picket, and by the end of the tale, they are friends.

Con: There isn't much substance to the story (the stakes are saving an old rabbit), and zero tension. It's nice of Aril to save Picket's mom, but it clearly means nothing to her, and so it means nothing to us either.
