Description

Discover what happens when a young imagination armed only with an HB pencil is pitted against its nemesis, an insipid picture book...

When Alex is given a silly, sappy picture book called Birthday Bunny, he picks up a pencil and turns it into something he'd actually like to read: Battle Bunny. An adorable rabbit's journey through the forest becomes a secret mission to unleash an evil plan - a plan that only Alex can stop. Featuring layered, original artwork, this dynamic picture book celebrates children as storytellers.

Review quote

A delightful surprise of a book, which wonderfully subverts just what a book can be. Alex's interjections are full of fun and clever wordplay. The scrawled drawings and handwriting are very believably the additions of a young boy. Battle Bunny is a unique and witty celebration of the power of imagination and the joys of creativity. * The School Librarian * "[A] celebration of the power of the story and children's creativity." -- Books for Keeps * Books for Keeps * Refreshingly iconoclastic, this is a book which provides a welcome contrast o the high earnestness of so many children's picture books. -- Robert Dunbar * Irish Times * Original and funny * Sunday Times *

Matthew Myers' career as a children's book illustrator began in 2011 with two starred reviews: Publishers Weekly, which named him a Flying Start, and Kirkus Reviews, which said: "Myers's oil paintings truly amaze." Since then he has illustrated several books, including Bartholomew Biddle and the Very Big Wind and Battle Bunny. Rather than adapting each book to his own style, Myers prefers to adapt his oil painting style to best fit the idea of each book he is working on. He lives and works in North Carolina.
