Battle Bunny

By Jon Scieszka, Mac Barnett

Illustrated by Matt Myers

Discover what happens when a young imagination armed only with an HB pencil is pitted against its nemesis, an insipid picture book...

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.

Customer reviews


'Original and funny' Sunday Times

'Refreshingly iconoclastic, this is a book which provides a welcome contrast o the high earnestness of so many children’s picture books.' Irish Times

'“[A] celebration of the power of the story and children’s creativity.”' Books for Keeps

'A delightful surprise of a book, which wonderfully subverts just what a book can be. Alex’s interjections are full of fun and clever wordplay. The scrawled drawings and handwriting are very believably the additions of a young boy. Battle Bunny is a unique and witty celebration of the power of imagination and the joys of creativity.' The School Librarian
