This Beginner Book starring P.J. Funnybunny is a bunny-rific tale of discovery!

Meet P. J. Funnybunny in this humorous and touching Beginner Book by Marilyn Sadler and Roger Bollen. It’s Not Easy Being a Bunny tells the “tail” of P.J. and his quest to become something other than what he is. Is it more fun to be a bear, a bird, or a pig? Read along as P.J. tries to determine who he is—and where he belongs.

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

"Sick of being a bunny, P. J. Funnybunny takes off to become a bear. Hibernation gets dull, so he tries being a bird. And so it goes, with beavers, pigs, possums, and skunks—till P. J. realizes that bunnyhood is for him. The short, repeating text is ideal for beginners and the bright, humorous cartoons will get immediate attention." —School Library Journal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a super book This book is wonderful for pre- and early-readers! The repetitive structure makes the story predictable, and the illustrations delight the children I've used the book with. I LOVE this book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PJ Funnybunny is Excellant My 4 year old borrowed this book from the library 10 days ago and we have read it every night. He loves the pictures and has memorized the animals. I am not looking forward to returning it so I may have to buy my own copy and get more in the PJ Funnybunny series
