Little Rabbit and the Meanest Mother on Earth

Klise, Kate. 2010. Little Rabbit and the Meanest Mother on Earth. Illustrated by M. Sarah Klise. New York: Harcourt.

This is another of those books that jumps out and yells "Read me!"  I hate to admit that I'm so affected by cover art, but I am.  I read the book (and loved it!) before looking at the author and illustrator; now I'm firmly convinced that the Klise sisters  know the exact location of my funny bone.  From the Regarding the... series to the Dying to Meet You series, they are consistently funny and inventive.

Little Rabbit and the Meanest Mother on Earth is the Klise sisters' latest picture book featuring Little Rabbit, and Little Rabbit's room is a MESS!  He would love to attend the circus that has arrived in town, but mom has decreed that he must first clean the playroom. How mean is mom?  She's the meanest mother on earth, and she's about to become the newest circus sideshow!
Only 5 cents! Odd! Shocking! The Amazing Rabbit and the Meanest Mother on Earth! 
 Will Little Rabbit's mother satisfy the 100 animals who have purchased tickets to see the Meanest Mother on Earth?  Or is there something even more shocking than the Meanest Mother on Earth?

Delightfully funny with humorously detailed paintings (don't miss the "mold-o-meter"), often featuring the "ring" motif of the circus.
