From the author of the bestselling Ladybug Girl series, this hilarious, empowering picture book about a little black-belt who faces a new challenge is perfect for fans of The Three Ninja PigsThe Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog, and I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato
Black Belt Bunny is fast and strong and has seriously awesome moves—from front-kicks to back-flips to air-chops. Then he’s faced with something new, something every bunny must learn, something he might not be as good at: He has to make . . . a salad. Black Belt Bunny tries to escape. He even disguises himself with a fake mustache. But when he finally hops to it, he discovers that his seriously awesome moves come in pretty handy, and that—in a funny twist that puts the narrator in the hot seat—he isn’t the only one who has to try new things.

Black Belt Bunny is reeeeeeally fast, incredibly strong, and a great ninja! He chops, kicks and does backflips, but his biggest challenge is making a salad. This book is hilarious as bunny tries to hide and even put on a disguise to avoid making a salad. Once bunny discovers he can use his ninja skills to cut vegetables, he learns to create a delicious salad.

We loved the illustrations, and the entertaining sounds of bunny's karate moves. The interaction between the narrator and the bunny brought us right into this amusing story. We loved seeing bunny use his talents to develop a new skill and to try something new. This book is silly and a lot of fun for children and aspiring ninjas. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
