The Backup Bunny

Everybody needs a backup plan, especially when you lose your favorite toy.

When Max loses his favorite toy—Bunny—his clever mom brings out the “backup bunny”—Fluffy—to save the day. Fluffy is thrilled to have the chance to play with Max, but is soon rejected by the observant child who notices that his ears are too new and perky. Can Fluffy find a way into his favorite boy’s heart?

The Backup Bunny will keep you laughing and inspire you to make room for another favorite story.

Fluffy directly addresses readers, and his frustration and sadness over being the second, oft-rejected choice will resonate with them—even if they won’t necessarily recognize themselves in fickle Max.
