Big Mean Mike

Author(s): Michelle Knudsen


What happens when a big tough bruiser of a dog comes up against a bunch of sweet fluffy bunnies? Will his big tough heart melt? Big Mean Mike is the biggest, toughest dog in the whole neighbourhood. He has a big mean car that he likes to drive around the big, mean streets. Everyone knows that Mike is big and mean and that's just the way he likes it. Then one day a tiny fuzzy bunny shows up in his car. Before anyone can see, Mike puts the bunny down on the pavement and drives away. When the tiny fuzzy bunny shows up again and this time brings a friend, Mike tells them both to get lost. Big, mean dogs do not hang out with tiny, fuzzy bunnies! But gosh, those bunnies are SO sweet...This is a new picture book from the best-selling author of "Library Lion". This is a laugh-out-loud funny story about peer pressure and image - important issues even for very young children. This is a funny and sweet take on what it means to be tough and to be yourself. This book is jacketed.
