Meet Betty Bunny, a loveable handful nobunny can resist.
From author Michael B. Kaplan, creator of Disney’s T.V. show Dog with a Blog, comes the debut picture book of the Betty Bunny series. It's a story about patience—seen through the eyes of a precocious preschooler.
Betty Bunny is the youngest in her family of rabbits and she’s just discovering the important things in life, like chocolate cake. She declares, “I am going to marry chocolate cake” and takes a piece to school with her in her pocket. Mom values healthy eating and tells Betty Bunny she needs patience when it comes to dessert. But Betty Bunny doesn’t want patience, she wants chocolate cake! In this funny tribute to chocolate lovers (and picky eaters), Betty Bunny’s charming perspective on patience will be recognizable to anyone with a preschooler in their life.

Betty Bunny and her antics involving her favorite dessert are hilarious. Another funny creature tale like Lilly and the plastic purple purse, who is like Junie B. and Ramona.

Reluctant to try new things, Betty Bunny won¿t have anything to do with chocolate cake. That is, until she tries a bite, and then she can¿t stop talking about the dessert! Everything reminds Betty Bunny of chocolate cake¿learning the alphabet, recess, eating healthy foods. Unable to contain her excitement for her favorite new food, Betty Bunny decides to have a piece of chocolate cake accompany her to school¿in her pocket. Betty Bunny antics are precocious and lovable, and her mistakes in listening and behaving provide a lesson in being patient. The language is kid-friendly and relatable, like when Betty Bunny calls her mother a handful, thinking it is meant as an endearing term. The ending is cute and appropriate, and the illustrations by Stéphane Jorisch deserve admiration for their whimsical and original nature. For ages 4-8. Recommended.

Betty Bunny discovers the wonders of chocolate cake. Sadly, there is no chocolate cake at school and she cannot, she finds, get chocolate cake until she eats her healthy food. She does not want to eat her healthy food. She only wants chocolate cake. This can only lead to trouble.¿The next morning, Betty Bunny wanted to say good-bye to her chocolate cake before she left for school. So she opened the refrigerator and saw her piece of cake sitting on the plate. Betty Bunny knew that the cake would miss her all day while she was at school. So she picked it up and put it in her pocket. At school, her teacher said, `Betty Bunny, you seem very happy today.¿ Betty Bunny just giggled. There was chocolate cake in her pocket and no one knew it but her.¿An all-too-real Betty Bunny and her trials with cake.

Cute and funny book! I love books with some slight adult humor; for instance Betty Bunny thinks "being a handful" is a good thing because she knows her parents love her. Therefore she tells her mom that she's a handful. The kids didn't quite understand, but mom and dad laughed! Check out Betty Bunny books--very fun to read!
