Buns Gone Bad

Tundra. (Fluffle Bunnies: Bk. 1). May 2024. 176p. Tr $13.99. ISBN 9781774881262.
Gr 2-5–A park, a public bathroom, and a crabby moth greet readers. The moth offers to tell the tale of the Fluffle Bunnies’s descent into badness. That road starts out sweetly with the birth of siblings Flop, Biggie, and Boingy, but Mama soon abandons her brood to pursue her jujitsu career. The naive threesome must now fend for themselves. Food, water, and shelter prove illusive, and a ferocious dog, mean, nest-stealing chipmunks, and girls using the public bathrooms drive the unknowing trio into a covered trash can. There they are captured by two raccoons who confuse Flop’s leg for a lucky rabbit foot. The road to deception (and survival) is paved when the siblings promise to grant the gullible raccoons three wishes. Readers will laugh out loud as all the wishes are granted with hilarious outcomes while the bunnies outsmart the racoons. The moth then sets the stage for the next adventure/takeover! Black-and-white illustrations in a variety of panels are used to great effect with plenty of action and loads of funny dialogue.
VERDICT Fans of “The Bad Guys’’ series by Aaron Blabey will welcome these rascally rabbits in this new series that’s ideal for any graphic novel collection.
