My Funny Bunny

Christine Roussey | Translated by Jody Mosley

When a boy receives a gift box from his uncle on his sixth birthday, he’s sure he knows what’s inside - the perfect adorable dwarf rabbit of his dreams! The box does indeed contain a bunny... but it looks like a potato, with wiry whiskers and blobs of yucky fur - most definitely not perfect or adorable. The boy is a blur of sadness, fury, and disappointment, until the bunny finds ways to comfort him. Maybe this funny bunny isn’t so bad after all? This sweet story teaches children a valuable lesson about why it’s important to give pets (and people!) a chance... even if they seem quite imperfect at first.

Originally published by La Martinière Jeunesse in 2017 with the title Mon Lapin Patate. Translation available from March 12.
