A Review of The Brothers Foot: A Hare Raising Story

The Brothers Foot: A Hare Raising Story

Written by Steve Cormey

Illustrated by Ronda Eden

Published in March 2009

Published by AuthorHouse

ISBN: 978-1-4389-4269-8

The Brothers Foot is a children's picture book about three rabbit brothers with rather peculiar names.  The brothers like to jump and play in the briar patch, but best of all they like to sing.  The trio likes to sing their special Foot Foot song.  One day three hunters, with guns, come to the briar patch.  What do you think happens?  I don't want to spoil the ending, so you will just have to read the book to find out for yourself!

The Brothers Foot has fun, colorful illustrations that compliment the story.  In the back of the bok, you will find the words to The Foot Foot Song along with guitar chords, so you, too, can sing and play.  The available CD has one song on it.  The Foot Foot Song!  Now you, too, can sing along with this folksy song.  Who knows, you might even catch yourself humming or singing this catchy tune, when going about your day.  The DVD has both the story and song along with the same whimsical illustrations that are in the book.

I would definitely recommend reading this fun book.  I think that it will be enjoyed by both children and adults.  The book, CD and DVD will have you laughing and singing along.  Who doesn't need a little laughter and silliness in their day?

Great cover and illustration. Does Author House provide services to publish cds and dvds?

That's a great strategy - cover all bases!

Best wishes for your book's success.

Love the fact this book has a music CD and DVD, too. Makes it really fun for children

Hi, Joylene. I've been humming and singing the Foot-Foot song all week. It's hard not to smile when I've got such a fun song running through my thoughts.
: )

Hi, Lenny! It is a fun book. Like I told Miss Joylene, I've been humming and singing the song all week!

Hi, Karen. I don't know if AuthorHouse provides services to publish CDs or DVDs. Hopefully the author or illustrator will stop by to answer that question.

Hi, Diane. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi, Virginia. I think it is fun to have a CD and DVD to go with the book. Gives kids different ways to experience the story and the song.

Janet Johnson said...

The illustration looks so fun! Thanks for sharing about it. :)

Susanne Drazic said...

Hi, Janet. The illustrations in the book are more like the cover. The illustration of the rabbit brothers in the truck was part of the promo pack, and I thought it was cute, so I wanted to add it to the blog post. Thanks for stopping by!

I can picture children now, reading and singing along with the rabbit brothers as they read. What a neat book.

Stephen Tremp said...

Sounds like a hoppin' good time. One of these days I would like to see the cute little critters take down the hunters. At least send them running for their lives.

Susanne Drazic said...

Hi, Beverly. I can picture it, too. The Foot-Foot song is one that kids will sing over and over. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi, Stephen. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Oh, this sounds super! There isn't anything much better than bunnies in my eyes...(except maybe bunnies and cake.)

Susanne Drazic said...

Hi, Julie! Glad to share this book with everyone. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

Hi, Sharon. It is a fun book. My ears perked up with the mention of cake, LOL. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Great review, Suzanne! It looks like a really fun read.

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Susanne Drazic said...

Hi, Talli! Thanks for stopping by. Glad you enjoyed the review. Other than being up way to early this morning, the weekend is going good. Hope you are having a great weekend!

G'day, thank you everyone for the positive comments! About the CD/DVD's, Authorhouse does not have the capacity to include these so it was left up to Steve to produce both CD and DVD and loving paste pockets in the books to create a package. For this you just need to go to and order them directly through the author. I also have some you can buy just by contacting me at
Cheers for now and have fun singing and dancing with the happy little Brothers Foot!
Ronda Eden, Illustrator
