Battle Bunny

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Encourage creativity with this wildly entertaining picture book mash-up from the minds of Jon Scieszka and Mac Barnett.

Alex has been given a saccharine, sappy, silly-sweet picture book about Birthday Bunny that his grandma found at a garage sale. Alex isn’t interested—until he decides to make the book something he’d actually like to read. So he takes out his pencil, sharpens his creativity, and totally transforms the story!

Birthday Bunny becomes Battle Bunny, and the rabbit’s innocent journey through the forest morphs into a supersecret mission to unleash an evil plan—a plan that only Alex can stop.

Featuring layered, original artwork that emphasizes Alex’s additions, this dynamic exploration of creative storytelling is sure to engage and inspire.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 05, 2013 – Scieszka and Barnett wonder what would happen if the young recipient of a dorky picture book, Birthday Bunny, decided to... improve its treacly text and soppy pictures, and make himself the hero to boot. Scrawling in pencil over the original story and its creamy, vintage-style oil images, Alex rechristens the book s main character, Birthday Bunny, as Battle Bunny, turning the floppy-eared cutie into a helmeted, eye patch wearing, saw-wielding global nemesis, complete with an Evil Plan and knowledge of 1,104 fighting styles. Today is Judgment day! announces one of Battle Bunny s friends-turned-foes. Yes it is, replies the warmongering rabbit. Judgment day for you!!! Can anyone stop Battle Bunny? How about a certain boy who s very good with a pencil? Kids should absolutely not try this at home (at least not with library books), but they ll get plenty of vicarious laughs out of Alex s changes, which becomes so extensive and freewheeling that the original book (about an innocuous forest surprise party) is all but illegible. A hilarious and transgressive story with a clear message: Don t suffer schlock. Ages 5 9.
