Paws McDraw is the fastest doodler in the west. If a story needs a happy ending, his sharpened leads and quick fingers can make it happen. The little bunnies come to him with all their problems so when little Timmy falls down a well, Paws draws a bucket to pull him back to safety. They’re all celebrating with cupcakes when some rascally racoons roll into town to cause trouble. Paws draws and draws but they seem to upstoppable. It’ll take some magic to chase them out of town, and with Paws’ pencil and a sprinkle of a cupcakery the bunnies are safe again.
Connah Brecon’s mixed-up western has some unusual elements but bright illustrations and cute critters keep the story moving. The colours are beautiful and inventive layouts mean there is lots to look at. The little bunnies’ speech bubbles are very sweet and while it’s a rather unconventional ending, that may well be the thing that really tickles little readers.
