You Can't Go Wrong with PJ Funnybunny Jan 2, 2008
My brother loved the PJ Funnybunny books as a kid. Now my son loves them, too. A cute story with great illustrations, sure to become another family classic.
Very Clever! Jun 6, 2007
My son has had this book for several years and very much enjoys it.
This delightful story follows a bow-tie wearing P.J. Funnybunny as he and his three friends--Ritchie the raccoon, Buzz the beaver and Potts the pig--set out to go on a camping trip.
P.J.'s sister, Honey Bunny, asks if she and her friend Donna Duck can come along. "Camping is not for girls", P.J. lectures.
The rest of the story shows all the "hard" work that P.J. and friends experience as they establish their camp. P.J. even tells a campfire story so scary that he frightens HIMSELF!
Then, two "ghosts" appear--scaring the beegeezus out of the boys...who then run home. But, when P.J.'s mom ask what happened--they all lie.
But Honey Bunny and Donna know what happened!
In addition to being a clever story, P.J. Funnybunny provides a great opportunity for parents to discuss the topic of lying with their children--not to mention gender equality!
This book is a Step 2 "Step Into Reading" book by Random House and is geared towards 5-6 year olds. (I have more recent Step 2 books and this one seems a bit more complex/longer than recent Step 2 books.) Step 2 books tend to have basic vocabulary, short sentences and simple plot lines. So, it's a good book for beginning readers--as well as a good story for bedtime.
Great Fun Jul 17, 2000
At first I thought this book was a little negative for girls because PJ and his friend kept telling his sister and her friends that camping is not for girls. But even my three year old daughter understood that the boys were the ones who did not know what they were doing. The ending allows for discussion on telling the whole truth.
