HBO's Emmy-winning Last Week Tonight with John Oliver presents a 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, Mike Pence - 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. 100% of Last Week Tonight's proceeds will be donated to The Trevor Project and AIDS United.

In honor of #bannedbookweek, I pulled this off my shelf and read it to my son. Completely delightful, I particularly like the illustrations (Marlon‘s bow tie tho 🙌🏻)

A much sweeter book than I was expecting, pleased to have this in my library.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

[As an aside, anyone else wonder how the infamously bigoted Pences came to name their rabbit after a man who was famously bisexual or is it just me?]

Ericalambbrown This is a great book! 2mo

It's #BannedBooksWeek! A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo was one of the most challenged books of last year; I thought I'd give it another listen tonight. Do you have a favorite banned or challenged book?

I absolutely loved loved loved this book! The bunnies were adorable and it sends out a great message that each and every one of us is different. It shows why the other animals are different and that is okay. Even when the stinky bug tried to stop Marlon and Wesley from marrying each other, the animals figured out a way to stop the stink bug. Highly recommended read for any age!

My #rabbits pick is the amazing "A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo" I love this book so much ♥️?
Every year my daughter dresses up as the Easter Bunny for our neighborhood Easter party. We have food, games and an egg hunt for the kids. She loves dancing and playing around with the kids in costume.

I borrowed Marlon Bundo from the library, and I have no idea why I waited so long. This book is adorable, and perfect in every way it was intended to be. The illustrations are so cute. And while it pokes fun at the current political clime, the message is enduring. Love as thou wilt! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

Marlon Bundo is the 700th book I have marked as read on Goodreads. It is a milestone for me! I have only read about 15-20 books per year up until May of 2015, when I left a job that was bringing me down - and started to read. About two thirds of the 700 was read since. I am very happy about that :)

This charmingly illustrated children‘s book is adorable, humorous, with cute bunnies. And, with a message that love is love, and stinkbugs can be voted out of office.
I got a special kick out of the bunnies watching BNN and the Real Wolf Blitzer. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

🎧 In 2018, I listened to 71 audiobooks for a grand total of 658 hours, 35 minutes, and 24 seconds.

My favorite? This heart-warming 7-minute children‘s book about a “Very Special boy bunny who falls in love with another boy bunny” 🐰

Marlon Bundo is about to have a very special day- but it started out like any other with him waking up alone, eating alone, and watching tv all alone. But when he went into the garden he met a very beautiful bunny named Wesley- that all changed. The two bunnies face adversity at the legs of the Stinkbug, but with the helps of their friends they realize that different is good and that they can decide who is in charge by voting!

BooknerdsLife I really want to read this one too 😄 12mo

I've been waiting since March to read this, and I finally got it from the library yesterday. It's a cute story and I might actually buy it for my siblings' kids. It teaches acceptance and to love differences.

I bought the John Oliver Bundo Book finally. It was super cute. Well written children‘s stories can be so layered. Even when they were probably conceived of as a joke.

A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo arrived! Get yourself a copy and enjoy the sweet story of how Marlon Bundo and Wesley fall in love and defeat VP Mike Pence, um, I mean the Stink Bug. You get an adorable book suitable for bedtime reads with children of all ages, you get to give the Trevor Project a little money, and you get to annoy Mike Pence. Triple win! ❤️

Jprglisa That is a cute graphic, I‘ve never seen a summary like that. Is it an app or a website? 2y
Eki @Jprglisa it‘s an app. It‘s called Bookly. You can track your reading time with it and you get estimates how long you will need for the rest of the book. 2y
