Knuffle Bunny is the stuffed animal and Trixie is the girl who loves her. This story was so sweet and a fabulous conclusion to the Knuffle Bunny books. It reminds me of my favorite comfort toy, and the day I realized I didn't need it anymore. All three of the Knuffle Bunny books are great! I read them for pleasure, for teaching kids about reading/writing good stories, and then read them all again! Mo Willems is a master story craftsman!

This touching story brings Trixie and Knuffle Bunny's adventures to a close in a loving and surprising way. It is a favorite in our house, safely ensconced in the Mo Willems section of our little one's library.

Product details 52 pages Balzer & Bray/Harperteen - English 9780061929571 Reviews:
"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "In this poignant vacation-themed conclusion to Willems's Knuffle Bunny series, Trixie accidentally forgets her beloved stuffed toy on an international flight, as she travels from Brooklyn to Holland with her parents to visit her Dutch grandparents. Willems emphasizes the way Trixie handles the crisis with all the maturity she can muster: 'Trixie tried to enjoy going to the cafe and the swings in the playground,' but 'he missed her Knuffle Bunny.' Her knowing grandparents note 'how big she was getting. Trixie understood. She was getting bigger. Even if she wished she wasn't.' Willems's color caricatures, superimposed on grayscale photos, track Trixie's shifting moods and resolve, and a gatefold pictures Trixie's cathartic dream of the rabbit meeting other children worldwide. In the previous books, the prodigal Knuffle Bunny always returns, and Trixie always needs him. Here, a growing Trixie proves capable of letting go and, when the rabbit reappears, she chooses the terms of their good-bye. Willems's affectionate saga comes to a reassuring end, letting readers know they can release the treasured objects of childhood without losing their identities or their families' love. Ages 3 – 7. (Oct.)
