WHILE WE WERE OUT by ho baek lee is a delightful south korean import, quiet and fanciful.
with the family away and the door unlocked, bunny has the apartment to herself.
she enjoys a meal at the table,
and fancies herself up a bit.
bunny finds a costume just her size
and goes for a spin with rollerskates and chopsticks.
tuckered out from her exploits, bunny finds a comfy bed. the next morning she returns to her spot on the balcony
and does her best to look innocent.
(the very last page, which i did not photograph, is rather humorous, so i shall leave it a surprise for anyone fortunate enough to nab a copy of this book.)
go forth and read to someone small. (or large. or mediumish. i'm all about equal-opportunity reading.)
