We Love to Read: Big Bad Bun by Jeanne Willis & Tony Ross


Something we are reading, Big Bad Bun by Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross - by Alexis at somethingimade.co.uk

We first got this book out from the library when Coco was a bit too young to apprciate it. I ended up buying it for my God daughter who is a couple of years older... and I also thought it would amuse her parents too. Her Mum was a bit of a rebel in her younger days - although I doubt she'll ever share the details with her girls!

Fluff has run away from home and has joined the Hell Bunnies... in his letter home he spills the beans on what he has been up to.

Tony Ross's illustrations are great - he is a prolific illustrator but we only actually own a couple of his books (in fact I was looking at the Horrid Henry books in the library yesterday as they are perfect for Coco to read now... just not sure it won't be very confusing for our Henry).
The tale is definitely one that appeals to the adult reading it... but then I think that is quite good, nothing more boring than reading aloud a book that makes you yawn. It's also got a good moral about keeping things in perspective; a good parental lesson every now and again.
It's one of my our favourites.

SPOILER ALERT!
The next picture gives away the end... so go no further if you want to get this book be suprised by the ending...
