In fourteen, short, illustrated chapters, Isabel, John Himmelman's "bunjitsu" expert, learns important lessons of wisdom that are the perfect complement to her martial arts prowess. In the second chapter, "Bunjitsu Bunny Fails," the usually perfect Isabel fails to master the "bunchucks." She is profoundly disappointed,

"You should not be unhappy," said Teacher.
"But everyone passed the test except me," said Isabel.
"Do you know what you did wrong?" asked Teacher.
"Yes," said Isabel.
"Can you do better?" asked Teacher.
"Yes," said Isabel.
"Lucky you," said Teacher. "They passed the test, but you learned the most."

Bunjitsu Bunny learns wisdom through action and observation. Her lessons are similar to those imparted in John Muth's award-winning Zen Shorts picture books. However, the Bunjitsu Bunny books are simple chapter books for a suggested age range of 6-8 years. The words are large, and the red, black and white illustrations are bold and full of expression. The final chapter includes instructions for making an origami bunny face. Bunjitsu Bunny is a winner.

This is the second book in the series.
