US Kirkus Review » Though the cover depicts a closer alliance than the story ever quite achieves, this take on compromise provides fuel for thought. When neatnik bunny Wally advertises an upstairs apartment for rent, Mae, a huge bear, shoves her way into the house, turns her room into a pigsty and cheerfully gobbles up Wally's carrot cakes. When Mae invites her many brothers over for a wild party a frustrated Wally at last tries to put his slipper-clad foot down - but instead is swept up in the dancing until he collapses. Tenderly put to bed by his tenant from hell, the next day Wally realizes that he had fun and hops upstairs to push Mae into cleaning up her act a bit. Genial Mae and sibs are appealingly shaggy, massive presences in Weldin's cleanly drawn scenes, and along with the humor inherent in the characters' size differential, young readers will appreciate how the lay of Wally's long ears so clearly telegraphs his ups and downs. The friction disappears a little too easily, but this isn't exactly The Odd Couple. (Picture book. 6-8) (Kirkus Reviews)
