Knuffle Bunny

Mo Willems

Walker Books

Knuffle Bunny is a picture book that we would highly recommend. Any child who has ever had a favourite toy will identify with the toddler in this tale. The plot is simple: Trixie loses bunny, finds bunny and then exuberantly says her first words-"Knuffle Bunny!!!" The fun comes from the details. In an innovative style that employs dappled black-and-white photographs of Brooklyn as backdrop to wickedly funny color cartoons.
