Award-winning authors Jon Scieszka and Mac Barnett have teamed up to create a wildly funny story in which a Birthday Bunny turns his very own special day into Battle Day!

Synopsis

Battle Bunny by Mac Barnett, Jon Scieszka

When Alex is given a silly, sappy picture book called Birthday Bunny, he picks up a pencil and turns it into something he'd actually like to read: Battle Bunny. An adorable rabbit's journey through the forest becomes a secret mission to unleash an evil plan - a plan that only Alex can stop. Featuring layered, original artwork, this dynamic picture book celebrates children as storytellers.

Reviews

This deliciously subversive piece of metafiction skewers - with sharp wit and a sharper pencil - the earnest, purposeful literature so popular in the middle of the last century. Booklist, starred review

This is a perfect book to give independent readers who are looking for something a little different. The unique layout and design will inspire creativity in readers. School Library Journal, starred review
