The Giggle Book Award goes to Ninja Bunny by Jennifer Grey Olson!

Amazon.com

This is the story about a young bunny who gets a copy of How To Be A Super Awesome Ninja and proceeds to follow the first 10 rules. The results are mixed but most of them result in rather funny failures.

Finally, the little bunny finds himself facing a truly dangerous situation in the form of a large angry bear – with nothing but his book and a broom. It looks bad until all of his bunny friends show up and help him scare off the bear.

This moment of teamwork based success inspires the bunny to toss away his book and rewrite the rule list:

Ninja Bunny’s Rule #1: A super Awesome ninja needs super awesome friends.

Insane or not, Rudy was always destined to be Liesel’s best friend. A snowball in the face is surely the perfect beginning to a lasting friendship.

Note: This book is narrated by Death. The plot occurs during WWII. It is a very good book, with both humorous and serious aspects.

Diplodocus and Stegosaurus and Iguanodon stared at their friend.

“Maybe next Halloween…” said Diplodocus.

“Instead of wearing a VERY BIG FROWN…” said Stegosaurus.

“You should wear that VERY BIG SMILE!” said Iguanodon.

“Now that would be scary!” The three friends said.

T. Rex said he would think about it.

They Need Me There

“Can’t you come and stay with me?” said Danny. “We could have fun.”

“No ,” said the dinosaur. “I’ve had a good time – the best I’ve had in a hundred million years. But now I must get back to the museum. They need me there.”

“Oh,” said Danny. “Well, goodbye.”

Danny watched until the long tail was out of sight. Then he went home alone.
