Summary
Meet Barnaby, an unforgettable bunny (with a few blind spots)!

Barnaby has a very good memory. He remembers to brush his teeth and feed his grasshoppers, and he always, always remembers when it's ice-cream night. So how can someone with such a good memory forget something so important? As Barnaby soon finds out, sometimes the thing that's slipped your mind is right under your nose (or right above it). Lovable, scatterbrained Barnaby will win the hearts of adults and kids alike in Pierre Collet-Derby's funny and familiar tale of remembering what you've forgotten -- and learning to laugh at yourself.

Booklist Review
Barnaby, an energetic little rabbit, is late for school. He has a bit of a problem with remembering things, and today it's his glasses that have vamoosed. Careful readers will notice that the glasses are on his face. (It's amazing, actually, how long it will take some readers to notice this.) While brushing his teeth, he spots them, jarring him from ruminations on things he never forgets (like writing letters to Santa) to admitting some of his failures: not hanging up his wet swimsuit and not returning library books. Then a new realization: it's downright fun to lose things because of how great it is to find things. Collet-Derby's infectious ode to being scatterbrained gets a lot of mileage out of his irrepressible protagonist, who shifts from gape-jawed horror to giddy beaming at the drop of a hat. Primary colors fill in artfully sketchy outlines, mostly in small scale though the two-page spread of a horde of raccoons feasting on trash Barnaby left out is a joy. Now, does Barnaby remember that today is Saturday?--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2017 Booklist
