Synopsis

Tales of Bunjitsu Bunny by John Himmelman

Introducing Isabel, aka Bunjitsu Bunny! She is the BEST bunjitsu artist in her school, and she can throw farther, kick higher, and hit harder than anyone else! But she never hurts another creature . . . unless she has to. This series of brief stories about Isabel's adventures are a beguiling combination of child-friendly scenarios and Eastern wisdom perfect for the youngest readers.

Reviews

*Cleverly wrapped in an entertaining package, the zen-type morals are edifying but not preachy and serve to genuinely enrich the stories. The Horn Book, STARRED REVIEW

Himmelman simplifies his picture-book style with calligraphic black lines and delivers a series of Zen lessons touched with gentle humor. Kirkus Reviews

Himmelman tells delightful short stories about a little bunny named Isabel, who is mighty in spirit . . . makes for a good read-aloud. School Library Journal

Spare ink illustrations appear on every page, skillfully balancing humor, bunjitsu action, and understated grace. Like Isabel herself, this one's a winner in unexpected ways. Publishers Weekly
