Readiculous Blog on YouTube: Battle Bunny by Jon Scieszka & Mac Barnett

I'm newly into book-tubers AKA Book Bloggers who post videos on YouTube. I'm not quite sure if I'll do a full-on video blog. However, I do like to take some sweet videos at author events. Especially when authors are funny, cool, interesting, sweet, etc.

So, I created a new YouTube channel named (drum roll) Readiculous Blog

Feel free to subscribe or even suggest booktubers you think I should follow.

Here are my first videos, a reading of Battle Bunny, a hilarious picture book by Jon Scieszka and Mac Barnett. During their signing at Books of Wonder (one of my fave children's book stores) they decided to read both the original "Birthday Bunny" and updated "Battle Bunny" at the same time. (Trust me, it's hilarious)

The premise is:
Alex has been given a saccharine, sappy, silly-sweet picture book about Birthday Bunny that his grandma found at a garage sale. Alex isn't interested - until he decides to make the book something he'd actually like to read. So he takes out his pencil, sharpens his creativity, and totally transforms the story!
Birthday Bunny becomes Battle Bunny, and the rabbit's innocent journey through the forest morphs into a supersecret mission to unleash an evil plan - a plan that only Alex can stop.
Featuring layered, original artwork that emphasizes Alex's additions, this dynamic exploration of creative storytelling is sure to engage and inspire.
