Knuffle Bunny Too
Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity. Mo Willems. 2007. Hyperion. 48 pages.
One morning not so long ago, Trixie took a walk with her daddy. By now Trixie really knew how to talk.
Do you know Mo Willems? Have you met Trixie? If you don't know Trixie and her unforgettable Knuffle Bunny, then you should really pick up a copy of Knuffle Bunny. The book is very cute, very funny, and practically perfect in every way. This book, Knuffle Bunny Too, is a sequel. It takes place when Trixie has grown up a bit. (Yet she is still clinging to her first true friend, her Knuffle Bunny.) When Trixie takes Knuffle Bunny to school with her for show and tell, an unexpected adventure is set in motion. You see, Knuffle Bunny isn't as one-and-only as Trixie thought. Another girl named, Sonja, has one just like him. Oh no! (I would not have wanted to be that teacher.)
What's a girl to do when she loses her one-and-only Knuffle Bunny? Find out in Mo Willem's hilarious Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity.
