If you think being a bunny is pretty easy, then you should read this book. On this story, P.J. Funnybunny doesn't want to be a bunny anymore. There are three things he hates about being a bunny. One of them is having such big ears. So P.J. decides to run away and live with other animals and he even tries to behave like those animals. P.J. learns that it's not easy being a bunny, but it's even harder to be someone else. The lesson to be learned from this story is that it's always better to be yourself rather than somebody else.
I like this book because it's very funny. It's funny when P.J. wants to be a bird and he tries to fly. My favorite part is at the end when P.J. is so happy to be a bunny again. The illustrations are pretty cool and very funny. Other children will like them, too.
I recommend this book because it teachers you that it's very hard trying to be somebody else. It's better to be yourself!
