    The Flat Rabbit By Bárður Oskarsson


    The Flat Rabbit is a book about life and death A dog and a rat come across a ex rabbit in the road that they vaguely remember from the neighborhood Their dilemma is deciding what to do with this now very flat rabbit This children s book ponders the imponderables, without trying to provide trite and cheesy answers I love a book that can proudly state I don t know.

    A Dog and a Rat find a neighbor who they recognize by sight but are not on speaking terms with, Rabbit, squashed flat in the road, fail to understand what her flatness means or what they should do about it and ultimately tie her to a kite and fly her corpse Looking at the five star reviews here, people seem to be divided on whether this was a gentle introduction to the idea of death and dying or irreverent humor that will go over kids heads to tickle adults I m not sure which of these it was aim [...]

    This book s author is Scandinavian from the Faroe Islands When I discovered that, the book made much sense Tying a dead flattened rabbit to a kite to fly in the sky is maybe not the first thing you would think to put in a children s book, but it s kind of funny And kind of sad.It s probably not a book I would buy for my future children, though I m not sure what questions it would illicit, but I don t want to answer them.

    I really felt like I was missing some pages or that I wasn t getting it at the end of this picture book I understand that it could be about dealing with loss in a twisted sort of way, and after reading it I m not entirely sure it s meant to be a kids book I did like the art and would like to see from Oskarsson But I m really not sure I understood this particular book.

    If you ever chance upon a dead body in the road you will be faced with the dilemma of what to do with it Dog and rat settled on, attach the corpse to a kite and fly it after deliberation such as, What if somebody found her and ate her and I ve never talked to her, but I peed on the gate a couple of times, so we ve definitely met Instant classic.

    I thought this book would help my 7 year old twins process the loss of their neighbor friend, a victim of pediatric brain cancer, but no While we all loved the adorable illustrations, and found the story to be somewhat interesting and cute in spite of the subject being a dog and rat finding an acquaintance flattened in the road in the end I feel it is perhaps a bit pointless.

    So, what do you do when you re at work and someone says read this right now Well, you read it right now What a bizarre little book about dealing with loss, or was this about dealing with death Because I m not sure that dealing with loss was actually addressed For that matter I m not sure the characters were really dealing with death either There are some really funny moments, but they seemed to have nothing to do with the major theme, but had to do with the awkward relationships of talking anima [...]

    When I first pick up a book, I try to look upon it with child like eyes and I jump right in The whimsical, cartoon illustrations of The Flat Rabbit caught my eye first and made me relate to the characters on a cartoon level In cartoons, take The Road Runner or Tom and Jerry, as an example What happens if one of them gets flattened by a falling rock They pop right back to normal Because my brain was already in this frame of mind, I kept expecting the same to happen in The Flat Rabbit and therefor [...]

    There are still a lot of adult readers who feel uncomfortable with children reading about death, especially when it s dealt with in such a matter of fact manner But I believe that to shy away from something that we are all interested in and intrigued by at some point on our lives is missing a chance of empowering children to understand and question a subject that is hushed and considered taboo Oskarsson s, a writer from the Faroes, wonderful book explores the ritual that comes with trying to be [...]

    I m not sure how I feel after reading this book and maybe that s the point It deals with difficult issues like death and loss and the practical matters of what happens next, but it s so subtle and quirky and irreverent and PECULIAR I agree with those who say that it s not necessarily a book I d give a small child who had just lost a pet or loved one to help them come to terms with death, and I m not sure I know how to categorize it in my mindbut I don t think it s necessary to know exactly who t [...]

    Judge me if you will, but I m just going to come out and say it THE FLAT RABBIT was my favorite picturebook of 2014.Is it morbid Morbidly funny Maybe I mostly found it incredibly honest and touching Think THE DEAD BIRD by Margaret Wise Brown and Remy Charlip , only much subtle, and with a sense of humor I actually got teary when I finished this book did anyone else react this way

    It s morbidly funny, and I like the cartoonish illustrations Be warned, though THIS IS NOT A CHILDREN S DEATH AND DYING BOOK I saw it in a store as one recently, and just no If you ve had a death in the family, or one of your pets is dying, do not use this as a helpful explanation book.

    A picture book that made me laugh right out loud A lot.

    Shocking psychological thriller with a real twist ending WARNING, spoiler alert They turn the rabbit into a kite.

    Another children s book about death Hmm the title is pretty crude and direct, isn t it And the content matches that title little emotions, some attempted humor, with cutie pictures The problem is that this type of humor backfires in a situation like facing loved one s death Or even a stranger s death I wouldn t be surprised if a grieving child would totally get upset upon receiving this book.

    I m all for slightly strange stories for kids, but this one left me a little sick to my stomach thanks Kate.

    This book was super weird and I think I missed the point.

    This book is all kinds of messed up

    This just What When I finished reading this to my 6 year old, he said, What That s the end And then didn t believe me and read it himself to make sure I hadn t left anything out.Maybe something was lost in translation, but I m not sure if this is supposed to be darkly humorous or an existential contemplation of death I think that kids young enough to read picture books aren t going to get it, and kids old enough to get this don t usually read picture books.

    This is a weird, sweet, irreverent book about dead bodies, in this case a dead rabbit It might not be the right book for a super sensitive child who cries after seeing an animal who has been run over in the street, and it is maybe better read in isolation of such a witnessed sight, but, then again, the book presents a sort of helpful mental processing and understanding of what it means to witness someone or something no longer alive The living being who once inhabited the dead body is acknowledg [...]

    The Flat RabbitA cute little dogAnd his friend that s a rat,Find a motionless rabbit,On the road lying flat.Compassion kicks inOh what should be done They can t leave her thereLying still in the sun.They converse and they puzzle, An idea they create,They work through the nightDeciding her fate.They carefully scrape upThe rabbit s remainsAnd attach her still bodyTo a kite s wooden frame.They rescue the rabbitAnd treat her with love,They fly her kite highO re the city above The Flat Rabbit is gent [...]

    Um.I have a sick and twisted sense of humor I do There are moments here But over all this isn t one to share with a sensitive child I don t think it s a great death and dying book to share I don t think a final solution for a dead loved one or even a causal acquaintance is to tape them up to a kite and let them float A little too macabre there Again, you can probably read irreverent humor or sad compassion or whatever I was just disturbed.

    Hmm I am not quite sure what to think I really liked the illustrations The story is both tender and perplexing Two friends find a smooshed acquaintance on the street They handle the flattened deceased with tenderness and respect, then decide on a plan of action that is far from traditional The end will leave readers wondering What

    I don t know what say, really I think it is interesting, and possibly great, but not really great for children.

    I wouldn t use it for storytime, but I think adults might find it funny.

    The illustrations are fun, but I was disturbed by the premise for the book a rat and a dog trying to decide what to do with the carcass of their dead neighbor.

    What the hell.

    Oh, go fly a rabbit A dog and a rat come across a rabbit which has apparently been squashed by a car It s completely flat and also presumably dead, which is completely skipped over Nobody even mentions death in the book They look at her for a while and then think that she looks kind of sad all by herself and so they pick her up and take her home They then attach her to a kite, and the next day they fly her, on the kite, up into the air The dog then asks the rat if he wants to go up on the kite T [...]

    I really enjoyed the elevated humor within this book and found it to be a unique attribute within a children s book I would categorize this book within the fantasy realm because it includes talking animals and make believe Personally, I do not know if I would buy this book because I would have no clue how to teach this within a classroom, but overall it was a fun read.
