Mac Barnett and Greg Pizzoli together, sign me up. Bringing together their wit and artistic style for a series about a naughty rabbit makes for a hilarious time. In this book, Jack is out West with the Lady who is getting swindled by a bad man. Then when the tables get turned, the two pull a little heist of their own. Like Spaghetti Westerns the characters are not good role models, but are meant to serve as lessons, and in this case, comedic fodder. It is rare for an easy reader to depict a morally grey realm (even though picture books and fairy tales do it regularly), which means it offers an interesting opportunity. Naughty characters will certainly appeal to this age group, and the creators' narrative style presentation encourages interaction while reading. This means that older readers can easily open up a dialogue with their younger charges about tropes, why people steal, and what makes someone good or bad. A bold and funny choice.
