Big Mean Mike by Michelle Knudsen


Big Mean Mike by Michelle Knudsen

Big Mean Mike is the biggest, toughest dog in the whole neighbourhood. He has a big mean car that he likes to drive around the big, mean streets. Everyone knows that Mike is big and mean and that's just the way he likes it. Then one day a tiny fuzzy bunny shows up in his car. Before anyone can see, Mike puts the bunny down on the pavement and drives away. When the tiny fuzzy bunny shows up again and this time brings a friend, Mike tells them both to get lost. Big, mean dogs do not hang out with tiny, fuzzy bunnies! But gosh, those bunnies are SO sweet...


... seeing the bunnies charm their way into Mike's heart will keep readers attentive - and laughing. (Publishers Weekly)
