A darkly comic bedtime story for weary adults who are sick of adulting.

This is a book that should never fall into the hands of children. While it features a sweetly illustrated bunny, it's filled with dark truths and harsh realities. Adults, however, will find solace, humor, and relief in its pages.

This charming, naively illustrated tale follows Bunny on his adventures from innocence to adulthood as he encounters a series of obstacles adult readers will find all too familiar. Ultimately, as we laugh and cry along with him, Bunny reminds us that we're not alone.

  • A DARKLY COMIC BEDTIME STORY FOR ADULTS the perfect gift for parents at any stage.
  • A WITTY ALTERNATIVE to the happy endings of children's books.
  • REFRESHINGLY HONEST helps readers navigate the trials of adulthood with humor.
