A sweet little story about bunnies falling in love and an animal revolution in one.
I would have passed, because I suspected it would be more of a publicity stunt than story, but I couldn’t resist the audio cast: Jim Parsons (Big Bang Theory) as Marlon Bundo the bunny; Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family) as Wesley the bunny; John Lithgow (Third Rock from the Sun) as Stinkbug, Jack McBayer (30 Rock); Ellie Kemper (The Office); and RuPaul in supporting animal cast.
It turns out, it was a cute little story, with a solid children’s book feel. In the tradition of multi-generational appeal, it has veiled jokes for the older folks and solid messaging for the younger ones.

Listen to John Oliver talk about Pence and Bundo on his show (and the very frightening revelation that the Pence book promotion includes a Focus on the Family stop). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rs2Rl…
Oh, and I needn’t have worried about the art–Oliver’s piece has an animated excerpt of the story and the style is lovely, watercolor style shadings in a more traditional style. The one with the Stinkbug and his white toupee is effing priceless.
