HBO's Emmy-winning Last Week Tonight with John Oliver presents a children's picture book about a Very Special boy bunny who falls in love with another boy bunny.

With its message of tolerance and advocacy, this charming children's book explores issues of same sex marriage and democracy. Sweet, funny, and beautifully illustrated, this book is dedicated to every bunny who has ever felt different.


Author Notes

MARLON BUNDO is a very fun bunny who recently relocated to Washington, D.C. from his home in Indiana. He enjoys hopping through the garden, eating all his vegetables, and hula-hooping.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver staffer Twiss debuts with an accomplished parody of Charlotte and Karen Pence's Marlon Bundo's Day in the Life of the Vice President (Regnery Kids). Bow tie-wearing bunny Marlon Bundo lives with his "grampa," Vice President Mike Pence, "in an old, stuffy house on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory." He is lonely and bored until the day he falls in love with bunny Wesley: "He was bunny-beautiful." Readers are sure to agree: Wesley is floppy-eared, butterscotch colored, and wears a geeky-chic pair of blue eye glasses. After a perfect day together, Marlon and Wesley announce plans to marry. Animal friends, including a badger, a bejeweled turtle, and a hedgehog, work together to defeat-via casting their ballots-the Stink Bug, an impish green figure in a suit and tie who insists that "Boy Bunnies Don't Marry Boy Bunnies!" While the most likely readers will initially be the adults who pick up on the allusions to Trump-era politics, there's much for kids to like in Keller's (a pseudonym of Gerald Kelley) funny, earnest cast of anthropomorphic animals. A portion of proceeds from sales go to the Trevor Project and AIDS United. Ages 5-8. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
