Tales of Bunjitsu Bunny
Bunjitsu Bunny is a young rabbit girl named Isabel who is studying bunjitsu. Isabel can do all kinds of things: throwing, hitting, kicking, all sorts of bunjitsu type of things. But she is also very kind and smart. When things don’t go Isabel’s way, she is able to figure out how to make things work even though they don’t seem like they could. Another thing that Isabel is good at is being kind. As Bunjitsu Bunny teaches, do all you “can to avoid a fight.”
This is a fun chapter book for those young readers who are looking to find a fun new character to read a few stories about. (Plus the story lines are interesting and sprinkled with bunjitsu wisdom and humor.) There are different chapters for each story. In a world where there are relatively few intermediate books that are actually good, this one sure makes my librarian heart sing! As for the layout, there is a paragraph or two on each page as well as black, white, and red illustrations. Those young readers that love a good character, bunnies, or martial arts will all end up enjoying this particular book. Here is to hoping that there will be more Bunjitsu Bunny tales in the future!
