I seriously can not speak highly enough of Mo Willems. This author explores new areas and has unique and unusual ways of connecting with children and with adult's with a child's heart. I love his book. This Caldecott winner shows it's originality too in the illustrations which are a combination of photographs and drawn in cartoons of the characters. It makes for a fun and unique experience for both child and adult. Again, both my 5 yr old and my twin 3 yr olds are enchanted with Willems and this...more

In this sequel to Knuffle Bunny Trixie is older and really talking, a lot. She is excited for her first day of pre-K and to show Knuffle Bunny to her new classmates. Looking across the room Trixie sees Sonja and suddenly Kuffle Bunny isn't so one of a kind any more. She and Sonja don't get along very well and the Knuffle Bunnies get taken away by the teacher, Ms. Greengrove. Things look up when Ms. Greengrove returns the bunnies at the end of the day until 2:30 in the morning when Trixie realize...more

“Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity” is a great sequel to Mo Willems’ popular book “Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale.” In this adventure, Trixie enjoys her first day of school and showing off her Knuffle Bunny to everyone in her class until she comes home and realizes that something is wrong. “Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity” is a brilliant sequel about true friendship that children will enjoy as much as they enjoyed the first “Knuffle Bunny” book.

Mo Willems is the current children's book Juggernaut. It seems all of his books are hits. His Pigeon books are hilarious. His Elephant and Piggie series: brilliant.

Of his oeuvre though, I contend that the Knuffle Bunny series is the best. Of the 3 books, 2 won the Caldecott Medal.

So, we read all three in order tonight. Here is Eleanor's review for the second book:

Me: How many stars?

E: Dad? Can I tell you something really quick? Dad?

Me: Yeah?

E: Today... ummmm... since... I didn't like that they f...more

Illustration design was wonderful - so true that children don't pay attention to objects in the background. Story was disturbing - I can't imagine spoiling children like the dads did. Of course, the teacher (and the girls) should have been more careful in the first place. One solution would be to put the girls on the phone to each other and have them promise to take good care of each other's bunnies until school. After all, they got through dinner and bath etc. in one piece. It'd be a good lesso...more

I listened to the non-print version of this story, which was on audio CD. I recently discovered this section at my local library. To be honest..it was funny to hear that I have been pronouncing "Knuffle" incorrectly!!

Knuffle Bunny is an adorable story of a young girl and her beloved stuffed bunny. This picture book combines the use of photography and painting in its illustrations. The backdrop are photographs of the setting of the story, whereas the characters are lighthearted and reflected by t...more

Knuffle Bunny Too is the sequel to Knuffle Bunny. I have not read the first in the series but having so enjoyed the sequel I will keep my eyes out for the original.

Knuffle Bunny is the favorite toy of a now preschool aged Trixie. She takes her beloved bunny to preschool to show to all her classmates.

Unfortunately for Trixie, her Knuffle isn't the only one! Her preschool friend has one too! Then an even more horrible thing happens, the teacher mixes up the Knuffle bunnies and no one notices until...more

Trixie knows there's only ONE Knuffle Bunny, but Sonja bring another bunny that looks almost exactly like Knuffle Bunny to Pre-K! (Only that's one's a girl, apparently--pink ears, eensy bow.) This cannot be good....

I read this to several classes of kids this week, from Pre-K up to 2nd grade, and they all loved it. They noticed the "switch" right off the bat, and were very involved in the story. I think they all have a Knuffle Bunny of sorts, be it a doll or a Transformer, and they know they feel...more

The deliciously wry humour in the Knuffle Bunny books makes them as enjoyable a read for adults as for kids; perhaps more so! Mo Willems captures the quirkiness of childhood so well, no more than in the epilogue. Perfect!
Erika
This is a cute story about a young girl who realizes that she has the wrong stuffed animal in the middle of the night. The illustrations are set against black and white photographs of New York City which I thought was really clever. I like this story because Trixie reminds me of me when I was a kid (or now sometimes) and I love her devotion to her special stuffed animal. From an art perspective, I think I would love to work with kids on adding their own touch to photographs of known places as Wi...more

This a fantastic book, with great illustrations and a great way to engage children in something that they can relate to. Most children have a favourite toy. This story is about Trixie who takes her 'one-of-a-kind Knuffle Bunny' to school but to her surprise 'Knuffle Bunny' was not 'one-of-a-kind'. Her friend Sonja has one too. The bunnies are taken away by the teacher and returned to the girls after school. At 2.30am, tucked up in bed, Trixie discovers that it is not her bunny. Her parents are w...more

Trixie is all grown up now, well as she thinks. She is off to school with her father and Knuffle Bunny of course. She is excited to finally show off her Knuffle Bunny to all of her friends. When she arrives she is disappointed that her friend Sonja also has the very same exact Knuffle Bunny as she does. The whole day went downhill from there and their bunnies were taken away. But the day got better as it rolled on by Sonja and Trixie both got their bunnies back. They went off home and it was tim...more

Caldecott Honor book, Knuffle Bunny Too, by Mo Willems, is just as good as the first Knuffle Bunny book I read. Trixie is now in pre-k and still loves her Knuffle Bunny. The book is about how a friendship develops after a dilemma around a mistaken identity occurs. The combination of comic book characters and real life pictures of New York make this book visually entertaining, and is the reason I enjoyed the story so much. This book would appeal to primary school children at a read aloud time.

I saw this book in the library, it apparently reached the top 10 for best Picture Books this year. So I decided to read it.

For one, it seems you don't need to know the first book (I found out this was book 2), so yeah for that!

Now for the rest. I loved the illustrations, which were a combination of photographs and drawings. I have only seen it used in a few other picture books, so it is pretty creative/original. And it made the book come more alive to me, not only because of the photographs, bu...more

I couldn't stop laughing the whole time I was reading this story and experienced anticipation each time I turn the next page. I really empathized with Trixie's and Sonja’s parents, especially during the past midnight situation that ended with the exchange of the “one of a kind” bunnies. I love the illustrations. The use of real pictures of urban city locations gives a strong impression of the setting in the story. The use of cartoon style to illustrate the characters enhances the sense of humor...more

Trixie cannot wait to show her favorite Knuffle Bunny to all her friends in Pre-K! Whenever she gets to school though, she sees that Sonya has also brought a Knuffle Bunny for show and tell! The day does not go so well for either girl, and the teacher takes their Knuffle Bunnies away after an argument.It was a good book to use to talk about sharing and understanding of others feelings.
Luann
I love the mix of photos and sketches. It's an interesting idea for illustrations that could turn out really weird, but Willems executes it beautifully. I think I read the first Knuffle Bunny too quickly to really appreciate the illustrations. I spent more time with Knuffle Bunny Too and enjoyed finding all the fun sketches in the backgrounds of the photos.

On her first day of school, Trixie discovers her special, unique Kniffle Bunny may not be so unique after all. In the adventures and mishaps that follow, Trixie learns about friendship. Love the illustrations -- the colorful people over the monotone pictures.

I didn't care for Knuffle Bunny at all, so I didn't expect to like this one. To my surprise, this was a cute story that I really enjoyed. I loved the illustrations, especially the expressions on people's faces. Great book!

A very cute sequel to Knuffle Bunny that involves a slightly older little girl, a trip to school (Pre-K) and a case of mistaken identity. Fun story that is illustrated in the same manner as the original.

Hilarious! Almost as funny as the first one. The dads, girls and bunnies meeting up in the middle of the night at Grand Army Plaza might not have been the safest thing, but it was certainly funny.

Age: PreK

Genre: Realistic Fiction

Summary: Trixie brings her best friend Knuffle Bunny to school, and it accidentally gets switched, which leads to a middle of the night exchange and a new best friend.

Curriculum Connection: This is a fun book to use with PreK students, but also parents. It shows that everything doesn't always turn out how we want, and that good things can come out of bad situations.

Personal Reaction:I thought the book was cute, and liked the "grown-up" humor, like explaining wh...more

Okay. Mo Willems is a genius. Published in 2007, Willems returns to Trixie and her Knuffle Bunny. In this story, Trixie is thrilled by the chance to share her one-of-a-kind Knuffle Bunny with her Pre-K classmates. Excitement turns to disappointment, and then anger and jealousy when Trixie realizes her classmate Sonja has also brought a Knuffle Bunny to show the class. After a long day of difficult emotions, losing Knuffle Bunny to the teacher, and hard play on the playground, Trixie returns home...more

Written by Mo Willems, "Knuffle Bunny Too" is the sequel to Willems' "Knuffle Bunny". Trixie is growing up and talking now, and her stuffed toy bunny, Knuffle Bunny, is still the most important thing in her life. Now, Trixie is one her way to school to show her friends her beloved Knuffle Bunny, when suddenly she sees something she never expected.

To me, "Knuffle Bunny Too" is a predictable story that would be great for younger children. The thing that makes...more
