Simple lines. Simple story. Universal appeal. It's happened before in the publishing world, and it's happened again with The Peril of Magnificent Love.

Author Bradley Trevor Greive walked into a rare-book shop in Sydney, Australia several years ago and felt like he was looking back in time. There before him was a creative force as raw, strong, and straightforward as himself

When I first read this book it was about a year or two ago and I was in the middle of a not very interesting class at college. A girl I knew pulled out this book saying she bought it over the weekend, and soon enough a small group of us gathered around to read what looked like a very cute picture book.

The Peril Of Magnificent Love follows a young girl named Magenta as she tries to get the attention of a three eared bunny she’s in love with. Sounds pretty sweet, no? It’s 100% sweet but it’s also

I picked this mini-book up from the spinner next to the cash register at work, and had NO idea what I was getting myself into as I turned the first tiny page.

The Peril of Magnificent Love was heart-achingly cute, and packs such a deep truth about the way we love as human beings.

Logan
a tale about the importance of friends, being true to yourself and being wary of three-eared bunnies. Brilliantly simple artwork and exceptional use of checkmarks (you'll see!)
Esther
Sweet and delightful. Charms and warms the heart, as it resonates well with anyone who's ever felt anything for anyone.

There were really big words in here, and it's not that I'm illiterate, but it made the overall moral a bit confusing.

Lovely. Cute drawings. Though it seems like a children's book, it really is for those a bit older. Made me feel!
Christie
I great book for anyone who has ever been in love or is looking for "THE love."
Randall
