PJ Funnybunny Series:
It's Not Easy Being a Bunny
by Marilyn Sadler
PJ Funnybunny and Honey Bunny Funnybunny are two amusing, lovable bunnies that kids can readily identify with. They are the stars in a series of funny stories, each of which teaches a moral in an unobtrusive way. This series of popular children's books has sold millions of copies worldwide.
This particular story, It's Not Easy Being a Bunny, starts off with PJ being unhappy with who he is. He doesn't like his looks - especially his long ears - and he doesn't like the cooked carrots he has to eat. In short, he doesn't like being a bunny. So he leaves home to find his true identity as - among other animals - a bear, a bird, a beaver, a pig, a possum, a moose and a skunk. How he doesn't fit in, in each of his new roles, makes for hilarious reading.
What children learn from this story is to be happy with who they are. This is a much-needed message for our times, as many kids and grownups today are unhappy with themselves - how they look, who they are - and their lot in life. This book helps readers see themselves from a fresh perspective.
