Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale - Mo Willems
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I love this book. It is absolutely adorable. It is a pretty simple story, but the writing is so perfect that it works.

In the book, Trixie and her father go out to do laundry. All is fine until Trixie realizes that her stuffed animal, Knuffle Bunny, is gone. She does her best to communicate with her clueless father (which any parent or person who has been in charge of a small child for a few hours can relate to) to no avail. But it all works out well in the end.

I enjoyed the pictures. They are photographs with various illustrations set over them. I usually don't like the mashup of cartoon and photograph style (such as in the Olivia books), but in this book, I think they work. 

A fantastic read that is humorous and heart-warming. Very cute.

Wolfie the Bunny ★★★☆☆
Wolfie the Bunny - Ame Dyckman

Dot’s pretty salty about the new interloper in the family, but in  the end discovers something common to most big sisters: He might be a wolf in bunny clothing, but he’s still YOUR wolf in bunny clothing. Loved Dot’s sass, and her voice was fun to read aloud. Not a huge fan of the illustrations, though.

Wedgieman and the Big Bunny Trouble (Step into Reading) - Charise Mericle Harper,Bob Shea
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

A very funny book about a superhero named Wedgieman and a giant bunny. This is a very silly and humorous book in the same vein as Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants/Super Diaper Baby/Dogman. Wedgies and poop jokes galore. It has the same dumb humor as many of Pilkey's series. Take the villain, whose name is Bad Guy. You know it's dumb, but it is still satisfyingly funny. 

This is the first Wedgieman book I have read so I didn't really get the transition from Veggieman to Wedgieman or why he gives himself a wedgie at the end, but I did enjoy the book (and plan on reading the previous books as well). 

A funny, entertaining read.

Boo, Bunny! - Kathryn O. Galbraith,Jeff Mack

A very cute picture book. I love how simple the words are, but that there is still a whole story that goes on when combined with the pictures. The illustrations are great as well. A fun tale of being brave and making friends.

Release Day ARC Review: The Bunny And The Billionaire by Louisa Masters
The Bunny and the Billionaire (Dreamspun Desires Book 43) - Louisa Masters

This is such a Harlequin-esque book. I mean, seriously, this one lays it on super thick, and as such fits the Dreamspun Desires series to a T.

Here we have Ben Adams, a nurse from Australia, who recently inherited a large sum of money (and when I say large, I mean LARGE) from the old lady whom he looked after for some time, and whom he still misses. Never having known wealth, Ben decides on a tour of Europe but still counting his pennies and saving money where possible. 

While in Monaco, he meets Leo Artois, the billionaire from the book's title, who's never known a day without wealth, seeing how his mother is a princess and his father is not only fabulously wealthy but also almost French royalty or something of the sort. 

Why Leo insists on calling Ben Bunny all the time escaped me. Leo, as well as his circle of friends, come across as the sort of people who never had to work a day in their lives and who think nothing of spending money whenever they please. 

Ben only planned to stay in Monaco for a few days before heading to Italy, but after meeting Leo, and the instant attraction he feels for the man, he decides to stay a while longer. 

What I liked about this book is that Ben isn't shy about pointing out to Leo how wasteful spending isn't impressive to him, and that Leo make concessions for Ben's point of view on money issues, but also teaches him that some things are worth the money they cost and introduces him to some of the finer things in life that most mortals will never be able to afford. 

Ben, despite his substantial inheritance, is still a normal guy and tries to impress that normalcy on Leo. 

I believed their holiday fling. Their attraction burned brightly from the start, and I bought that Leo was fascinated with Ben, and vice versa, but their HEA romance - nah. Didn't believe it. They had so little in common, and despite Ben's new wealth, their social circles and life experiences didn't really mesh for me at all. Ben was too normal whereas Leo was way more sophisticated and often came across as someone whose illusions of entitlement were showing. Ben came across as uncomfortable with the OTT displays of wealth Leo and his circle found normal, and that doesn't make for a life-long romance. I mean, obviously with this series, disbelief must be suspended most of the time anyway, but the romance should still be something that resonates. And here, it sadly didn't, for me. YMMV.

The writing was pretty good; the dialogue was believable (with some snark, yay) for how the two men were characterized, and I'm interested in reading more by this author.
