Mo Willems of Park Slope, Brooklyn manages to make good out of a tricky situation. This autobiographical account chronicles an ill-fated trip to the laundry mat. Trixie and Mo, accompanied by Trixies presumably favorite stuffed bunny, Knufflebunny, head off for some daddy daughter bonding time over errands. Knuffle bunny is accidentally left at the laundry mat. Trixie melts down on the way home, but since she is too young to speak, her father can't figure what's wrong with her. Upon returning home, mom immediately asks, "Were's Knuffle Bunny?" The whole family races out to find the bunny. Upon his recovery, Trixie utters her first words.

The plot summary really doesn't do justice to how endearing this story is. Remember the artwork, Desi. Somehow Willems manages to make triangular noses adorable. Of note is that the cartoons are set against realistic, possibly actual, pictures of Brooklyn. ( )

Trixie goes on an errand with her daddy and beloved Knuffle Bunny, but somewhere along the way, something terrible happens - Knuffle Bunny gets lost. Retracing their steps, Trixie and her daddy race back to the Laundromat to find her friend. Will Knuffle Bunny be found?

Black-and-white photographs mixed with hand-drawn illustrations accompany this sweet story about a young girl who loses her favorite stuffed animal. ( )

Trixie can't go anywhere without her Knuffle Bunny. When he gets lost after a trip to the laundromat with her dad she throws a major fit to try to get him to understand her beloved bunny is missing.

I loved the use of mixed media in Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems. Reality hits a dad who is on his way to do the laundry and a favorite toy gets lost, but it is nothing he can’t handle. If you have ever loved a stuffed toy, or been the parents of a child who can’t live without their favorite “stuffy,” than this would be fun to read together. Many children have been through the stress of finding that a toy they are attached to has been left behind somewhere and can relate to the joy Trixie feels when she and Knuffle Bunny are reunited.

Placing cartoon drawings against black and white pictures of real places allows a subtle but powerful opportunity for children to associate the story with real life. The cartoon characters are clearly not the child themselves or their family, but they are relatable. The humor is subtle, also. With Dad running the errands and not noticing the missing bunny, and Mom immediately noting the source of Trixie's frustration. ( )
