Battle Bunny by Jon Scieszka and Mae Barnett is my children’s book pick for February. This book is amazing, ridiculous, and a unique read! Illustrator Matthew Myers does an incredible job drawing two overlapping stories on each page. Battle Bunny is for kids who enjoyed Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, Mo’s Mustache, Mr. Wuffles, and Do Not Open This Book.
Battle Bunny is the story of Alex who receives a book called Birthday Bunny from his Grandma. Alex isn’t too fond of this sweet children’s story about a bunny, so he decides to give it a creative re-write. This includes changing the title of the book to Battle Bunny and filling the pages with an action-packed adventure about a bunny involved in top secret missions and evil plans.
