Review: Knuffle Bunny

When little Trixie misplaces her best friend, Knuffle Bunny, at the laundromat, who knew this small crisis would instigate a major, life-changing event in a young toddler’s life?

This delightful book, written and illustrated by the irreverent Mo Willems, is one of our family’s favourites (read: MY favourite). The use of witty text and stunning black and white photos is only rivalled by the hilarity of the emotion in its characters.

Willems' simplistic yet sophisticated signature drawings perfectly complement a blatant sense of humour that hits adults and kids right on the funny bone. An instant classic that will have you flicking for a giggle long after the kids have entered college.
