New York City…London…and now Paris!
Paris, 2022: Bunny’s third adventure in the Hello, My Name is Bunny! award-winning children’s chapter book series finds Bunny inadvertently leading the charge to rescue Mona Lisa—the world’s most famous painting—which is being held for ransom by a pair of dastardly art thieves!
Will Bunny and her Paris pals succeed in their effort in rescuing Mona Lisa? If you know anything about Bunny and her earlier adventures, you know she’ll do her very best! This fearless feline is endlessly motivated by her desire to pay forward her good fortune for being adopted.
In Hello, My Name is Bunny! Paris, Bunny faces peril with her trademark courage and curiosity, because she knows one must always help a friend in need!
We created our book series for two reasons. First, we want to help raise awareness of the millions of homeless cats in the U.S. and in the world. Second, through storytelling we hope to encourage children and cat lovers of all ages to join us on a journey to create a kinder, more empathetic world.
Why did we set the story in Paris? Well, along with New York City and London, Paris is among the most adored cities in the world, and we knew Bunny could have an amazing adventure there. It’s certainly one of our favorite places! It also happened to be the city where we first began to shape the Hello, My Name is Bunny! concept, which began as a series of vignettes before it morphed into one city-wide adventure per book.
People are often surprised that Hello, My Name is Bunny! isn’t a picture book. In fact, it’s an illustrated chapter book, which is not a picture book and not a novel. It’s an early reader book (typically ages six to ten) that tells a story through prose rather than pictures, but also features lots of illustrations. Think Charlotte’s Web, Winnie-the-Pooh, A Bear Called Paddington, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and The Little Prince.
We like to say our books are suitable for children aged 6 and above and cat lovers of every age! After all, who doesn’t like to curl up with a cat and a good story?
