Punctuation Question

Does anyone know the proper format for quotations within quotations within dialogue? I have a character reading from a book, and there is dialogue in the book. For example:

"Oh no!" the rabbit said.

How would you quote that in a piece of dialogue. Would it be something like:

"'"Oh no," the rabbit said,"'" Lisa read.

Or

"''Oh no,' the rabbit said,''" Lisa read.

Or something else?
