In Battle Bunny a kid named Alex takes his pencil to a sweet book about a rabbit’s surprise birthday party and turns it into a story about an evil bunny’s plot to take over the world.
Don’t suffer schlock.

An enthusiastically taboo, devil-may-care outing … and a great writing inspiration to use on old books headed for the bin.

Scieszka, Barnett, and Myers invite children to take an active role in the story and to think critically about the choices author and artist make.

An honest reflection of the ways kids interact with books–in a way that’s accessible to kids themselves–as well as a complexly layered work of comic genius.
-Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review
what grown-ups think kids should like and what they actually do,
but neither joke nor point can comfortably stretch to thirty-two pages,
and Birthday Bunny itself is a straw man, purpose-built to be defaced.
Still, expect this to be something of a novelty hit !!!!!!!
among the man-children in your life.
