The box does indeed contain a bunny . . . but it looks like a potato, with wiry whiskers and blobs of yucky fur—most definitely not perfect or adorable. The boy is a blur of sadness, fury, and disappointment, until the bunny finds ways to comfort him. Maybe this funny bunny isn’t so bad after all?
This sweet story teaches children a valuable lesson about why it’s important to give pets (and people!) a chance . . . even if they seem quite imperfect at first.
