I really like that book. It was a really funny book and it made me laugh a lot.

Any child - or parent - who has lost a much-loved comfort object will relate to the characters in this modern classic by award-winning author/illustrator Mo Willems. When tiny Trixie accidentally abandons her stuffed bunny at the laundromat, she frantically tries to tell her Daddy, but her garbled attempts at speech ("aggle flaggle klabble!”) fail, ramping up to an all-out, wild-eyed, crying-and-going-limp fit. The wonderfully expressive lines of Willems’ characteristic stylised cartoons complement the story perfectly, communicating Trixie’s distress with hilarious, heartrending clarity. Check out the further adventures of Trixie and Knuffle Bunny in Knuffle Bunny Too and Knuffle Bunny Free.

Mo Willems is one of the best picture book authors/illustrators out on the market. He use to be an animator for Seasame Street, and he brings this experience to Knuffle Bunny, a book that mixes photographic backgrounds with his illustrations.

The story is straightforward. Trixie is a toddler who accompanies her daddy to the laundromat to do the laundry. She "helps" daddy in they way that only toddlers can. On the way home, Trixie realizes she is missing her Knuffle Bunny. She tries to tell her daddy this news, but lacks the language skills to do so. This leads to tears, tantrums and yelling, until Trixie's mommy figures out what is going on.

Can they find Knuffle Bunny in time?

Knuffle Bunny Free: An Unexpected Diversion
by Mo Willems

Mo Willems is a highly respected award-winner and best seller author for children. This book is part of the Knuffle Bunny series.
On a trip to Holland to see her grandparents, Trixie left behind her adorable Knuffle Bunny in the airplane. Mom and dad, grandpa and grandma didn't know how to console her during her sad vacation. Will she find her bunny again? A very interesting ending that makes us think of children getting more mature. Great fun to read!
Kids never seem to tire from Willem's stories.
