but then those kids that read WSD will be prepared for it!

Well... apparently it is an issue...

"Add to that the pellets. There are several references to eating pellets. Let’s go eat pellets. Then it dawned on me that they were eating their own poop. I found it a bit disturbing that they would so casually discuss eating their poop and do it together, like at a bunny dinner table, i.e. the lawn. So I brought it up in an online discussion. It turns out, the pellets are pre-poop and rabbits have to eat them or they will die. Sort of like birds regurgitating food and then eating it again. So my next logical question was, do the pellets come out of the mouth or the butt? They come out the butt. I understand the rabbits have to eat them. Still… ew."

From a 1 star review on Goodreads. This one to be precise: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1165086683?book_show_action=false

Chipster-roo:
Yep, real rabbits do this.

But still...I don't see how this is offensive in any way.

florapaw:
wow. sorry to butt in but what a petty reason to dislike a book lmao. imagine hating a rabbit book because they’re too much like rabbits

Neither do I but apparently some people think it is.

I mean that seems to be the core problem for this person as the review also says "This book is really about rabbits. I was thinking maybe it was a metaphor or something. "

florapaw:
seems like that’s a common problem then; someone once said to me that they couldn’t get into the book because they weren’t a rabbit. some people just have no imagination at all
