HBO's Emmy-winning Last Week Tonight with John Oliver presents a children’s picture book about a Very Special boy bunny who falls in love with another boy bunny. Meet Marlon Bundo, a lonely bunny who lives with his Grampa, the Vice President of the United States. But on this Very Special Day, Marlon’s life is about to change forever… With its message of tolerance and advocacy, this charming children’s book explores issues of same sex marriage and democracy. Sweet, funny, and beautifully illustrated, this book is dedicated to every bunny who has ever felt different.
“Above all, this is a sweet and funny book about tolerance, friendship, and the one message even our youngest kids can grasp perhaps more easily than perhaps any other: Love is love. I know my own kids would love getting this for Easter.” —Cool Mom Picks
"This cute, funny, and inclusive picture book has a positive message about celebrating who you are and loving whom you want." —Common Sense Media
"Beautifully written...gorgeous illustrations." —Seth Meyers
“An affirming book for children that goes beyond the adults-only type of parody titles that have gained popularity in recent years.” —School Library Journal
"A joy... Ignore the grumbling about Oliver turning the bunny America deserves into a metaphor for partisan politics, because the book is a 40-page triumph." —Esquire.com
"The Oliver parody is sincerely delightful-full of the attentive details and poetic grace notes that distinguish good children’s books...the explicit message of Oliver’s book is, in the words of Scooter the turtle, 'Everyone is different. And different is not bad.'" —The New Yorker
