The story of Marlon Bundo - btw the character is based on the real life Bunny of Vice-President Mike Pence) – is a little boy-bunny who falls in love with another boy-bunny and both want to marry and go together on their bunnymoon. But the stinky Stinkbug, – looks a lot like Trump, but with better hair – who is very important and makes the rules, even thought no one knows why, is totally against it! So what should our both bunnies do? Quickly summarised: this book is just great. Not only is the story really heart-warming, and teaches children that it is okay to be different (and also a little bit about democracy) but the drawings are so cute and lovely done too, that I simply fell in love with it.

"Above all, this is a sweet and funny book about of tolerance, friendship, and the one message even our youngest kids can grasp perhaps more easily than perhaps any other: Love is love. I know my own kids would love getting this for Easter." - Cool Mom Picks
"This cute, funny, and inclusive picture book has a positive message about celebrating who you are and loving whom you want." - Common Sense Media
"It's unbelievably adorable." --Scary Mommy
"Good for a chuckle for adults who support LGBTQ rights." -Kirkus Reviews
"A joy... Ignore the grumbling about Oliver turning the bunny America deserves into a metaphor for partisan politics, because the book is a 40-page triumph." -Esquire
"An affirming book for children that goes beyond the adults-only type of parody titles that have gained popularity in recent years." --School Library Journal
"A work of political satire that is also a great children's book." -Anita Silvey, author of 100 Best Books for Children and Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Children's Book
"Hilarious and charming." -People Magazine
"This is a spectacular children's book, one that stresses the most important lessons of love, democracy and acceptance...I won't wreck the ending, but I will say there is good reason to make this a bestseller. Any children's book that can move me to mist up because, ultimately, love does conquer all, is a book worth sharing." --The Star-Ledger
