The Whispering Rabbit - Brown

Remember Goodnight Moon and Runaway Rabbit? Well, this is a book I grew up on not realizing the good books Margaret Wise Brown had out there.
This book is about a rabbit who wouldn't cover his mouth when he yawned. One day a bee flies in during a yawn and decides to take a nap in the rabbits throat. The rabbit wants to go to sleep but now can't because of the critter in his throat. He is told he needs to make small noises, the smallest noises he can think of will wake the bee. After making many noises he finally discovers the one that awakes the bee and he is left to take an enjoyable nap.
I really love the illustrators that Brown teams up with, these are just so good! I love the bunny's expressions!
