Review by PW Annex Reviews

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver staffer Twiss debuts with an accomplished parody of Charlotte and Karen Pence's Marlon Bundo's Day in the Life of the Vice President (Regnery Kids). Bow tie-wearing bunny Marlon Bundo lives with his "grampa," Vice President Mike Pence, "in an old, stuffy house on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory." He is lonely and bored until the day he falls in love with bunny Wesley: "He was bunny-beautiful." Readers are sure to agree: Wesley is floppy-eared, butterscotch colored, and wears a geeky-chic pair of blue eye glasses. After a perfect day together, Marlon and Wesley announce plans to marry. Animal friends, including a badger, a bejeweled turtle, and a hedgehog, work together to defeat—via casting their ballots—the Stink Bug, an impish green figure in a suit and tie who insists that "Boy Bunnies Don't Marry Boy Bunnies!" While the most likely readers will initially be the adults who pick up on the allusions to Trump-era politics, there's much for kids to like in Keller's (a pseudonym of Gerald Kelley) funny, earnest cast of anthropomorphic animals. A portion of proceeds from sales go to the Trevor Project and AIDS United. Ages 5–8. (Mar.) Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly Annex.
