“Michael Rex, author of Goodnight Goon, has written another wonderfully goofy Petrifying Parody of a revered, bedtime classic. I am sure that somewhere in a parallel universe, mother mummies are reassuring their little mummies with this timeless story.”
— Ellen Davis, Dragonwings Bookstore, Waupaca, WI


A hysterical (and creepy) parody of a children's classic!

Filled with uproarious illustrations, a beloved classic gets a kindhearted send-up in this utterly monsterized parody from Michael Rex, creator of the New York Times bestselling Goodnight Goon. This is The Runaway Bunny like you've never seen it before. Kids will dig the vast array of terrible monsters, but parents will love the sweet sentiment. A fabulous Halloween treat for all those little monsters!

About the Author

Michael Rex lives in New Jersey. He's a big fan of The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd but feels that it's biased against giant trampling monsters and man-eating plants.
