Beautiful black and white photographs of Brooklyn and amazing colourful illustrations describe the story of little Trixie and her Knuffle Bunny and how it develops as Trixie grows up.
In this first book Trixie is so little that she can not talk This is a funny story that tells about Trixie and Knuffle Bunny s trip to the laundromat how Trixie lost her Knuffle Bunny how Trixie said her first wordsThe desperation of her parents when they realise that their daughter lost her favourite toy is priceless.
Heart rending, yet hilarious tale of a toddler who s not yet able to speak, and her attempts to communicate that her favorite toy has gone missing Trixie bawled She went boneless Have you ever tried to pick up a boneless child It s nearly impossible I like the combo of cartoony characters set against bw photos It s easy to see why this one has become a modern day classic.
The PandaBat loves this, even though she s never had a special stuffed animal or blanket or anything The PandaBat has always loved Knuffle Bunny Which is not as ominous as it sounds It s a good thing, really.

4 19 2011Library copy I d give this book extra stars if I could 5 is so limiting, no for the amount of times the phrase she went boneless has made me laugh at completely random moments during my work day It s a perfect description of what toddlers do during a tantrum You know, when they collapse on the ground this is great fun in a public place making them nearly impossible to lift I also happen to love these illustrations, with simply rendered drawings superimposed on black and white urban scenery Brooklyn, I presume An all time favorite.
