A to Z April Challenge 2013 ~ E ~ The Emo Bunny That Should by: John H. Carroll




Emo the Bunny was a sad bunny. He preferred gloomy days, walks over a cliff and misery of any sort. One day he saw something very unusual. Normally he'd take a nap and try to forget about it, but for some reason he took an interest.

Ducks, bunnies, chickens, squirrels, geese, bears, cows, robins and The Easter Bunny all play a part in the disturbing events which show that woodland creatures aren't always as cute, fuzzy and innocent as they lead us to believe!

Caution: This story is not for normal children. If you have any intention of raising a well adjusted child, this is not the right tale for you.


My Review:

What a truly demented story tale!  I fell in love with this book from the first time I read the title.  It is quirky and yes twisted.

Emo the bunny is misunderstood and very…well very emo. He accidentally finds himself mixed up with some very bad ducks and an evil Easter Bunny.
This story is sooo funny!  Emo is a charming, if unwilling hero.  I love how the author has him interacting with the other characters.  Plus the other characters are entertaining in their own right.   
While the story does portray the Easter Bunny in a very bad light and the humor is a tad dark, there isn’t gore or anything like that in it.  I wouldn’t recommend it for younger children, but midgrade and up will definitely get a kick out of this one.  I had previously had the fun of reading Zachary Zombie and the Lost Boy.  The humor and style of both books are on the same level and I would gladly like to get my hands on some of the authors other works to see if they are equally as amusing.

  3. What a strange book. I can't imagine reading it to my kids, but could see myself enjoying it. Like Juliet, I'm intrigued about the target audience.

  9. It reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. That's a demented tale.

    Demented. I may say that a few times today.

  15. Hah! I was totally not expecting this when I clicked A-To-Zs link - what a fantastic review of a very unique-appealing book.

    It kinda reminds me of some of Raold Dahl's stuff, just from the overview.

    It also reminds me of The Book Of Bunny Suicides.

    Either way, I've always been able to appreciate dark humor, and I'm still a kid at heart - I may end up checking this out.

    Thanks for sharing, Aimee!
