The reviews are in!

It’s been just a few weeks since we launched Hello, My Name is Bunny! London and we’re thrilled by the feedback we’ve received from customers and the media.

Hello, My Name is Bunny! London released in January 2019

Here’s what they say

Ingrid King, editor of The Conscious Cat said: “…this beautifully illustrated and equally beautifully written story will charm children and adults alike. I was pulled into the story from the very first page. As was the case with the first book, the antics of Bunny and her friends had me smiling throughout the book.”  Read her full review here.

And 10-year-old YouTube sensation @NPStation shared her enthusiastic five-minute review of the book in amazing detail!  You can view what she said here.

Customers tell us that they especially love the London illustrations and the touching friendship of Bunny, Lily, Goldy, and Rocky! Hello, My Name is Bunny! London is the second book in the Hello, My Name is Bunny! series, and it’s ideal for children aged six and above, and cat-lovers of EVERY age!

Coming up!

Next Saturday, March 23, you can tune in between 8.00am to 8.30am EST to iHeart Radio W.A.X.E. 1370 nationwide or 107.9FM/1370am if you are local to Vero Beach, FL. to hear my folks talk to Jan Demko of Cat Chat about me, my life, and my books! I’m SO excited!

Five fun facts about Hello, My Name is Bunny!

Living the kitty dream

When I was adopted in 2014, I had no idea I was going to be living the kitty dream! A nice comfy apartment. Food. Treats. Toys. Snuggles on demand. What more could a cat want? Having such good fortune led me and my folks to think about how we would pay it forward. And so, the idea for Hello, My Name is Bunny! was born. We donate $5 from every book sold to KittyKind. Our dream is to raise awareness and money for KittyKind, and eventually other rescue groups to help bring an end to cat homelessness and suffering! We know it’s going to take a while, but we’re in it for the long haul. We hope you’ll join us! 

Here’s some things you might not know about me

1. While my story is fictional, some of the characters’ names are based on friends and family. Mike the Mouse is named after my mom’s brother Michael; Joan and Bob are my dad’s real mom and dad’s names; and Polly the Pigeon was named after my mom’s beloved first cat she owned when she left home (I’m not jealous!).

2. Hello, My Name is Bunny! was originally going to be a series of short stories of my adventures, but we had so much fun writing the first story that it turned into a full-length chapter book

3. Adults seem to love Hello, My Name is Bunny! as much as children do. Check out our five-star ratings on Etsy to see what we mean!

4. Joe the Carriage Horse became the star of the story because the carriage horses who carry tourists through the busy streets of Manhattan make my folks very sad. They would love to see the horses retired to the countryside and replaced by electric buggies or souped-up pedicabs. 

5. Hello, My Name is Bunny! is the first in a series of books featuring me! Watch this space for news of the second book launching in January!
