I bought both the hardcover and the Audible version. I love the voices they chose! Children need to learn as soon as possible about how to not be a bully.

Beautiful story about a bunny and his happiness. Be who you are and be happy. And truly, who is the snowflake here? The people who lead with love or the hurt feelers over some gay bunnies?

I’ll admit I bought this book as a way to help The Trevor Project and AIDS United and express my problems with Mike Pence. A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo is an inclusive riff off of Marlon Bundo's: A Day in the Life of the Vice President, a children's book written by Mike Pence's daughter Charlotte Pence. VP Pence is notoriously anti-gay so this story probably put a twist in his panties. Bottom line; A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo is a fun childrens story and a great way to educate kids about love in all its forms. I enjoyed it and think kids of all ages will enjoy it as well.

As soon as I saw this book on “John Oliver presents”, I knew I had to have a hardback copy – and yesterday it arrived! This is such a lovely story – for children of all ages, for anyone who has ever felt lonely and / or different, or for those who just love a feel-good story. The illustrations are just wonderful – anyone would fall in love with Wesley. With the exception of the Stinkbug, all the characters look and act in an adorable manner (keep a look out for Phil and Dennis!). They are primarily Friends (with a capital F), who love and support Marlon Bundo, because that is what friends do: “Everyone is different. And different is not bad. … Different is Special”. Each of the friends mentions ways in which they are different, so Marlon’s choices mark him out as just as unusual as someone who “reads the end of books before the beginnings”, and not as someone to be shunned or pilloried. This book is about tolerance, open-mindedness and love – but also has strong lessons about the importance of democracy as a tool for positive change. May Marlon and Wesley hop together for many, many years to come.

So, my boyfriend and I are huge fans of John Oliver and we try to watch him once a week--though ironically, this is the week where we were too busy to do so until last night and resultingly, this post is a little late. However, it's one that I feel definitely deserves a place on this blog and a review on Goodreads, so here we go. Who has heard of Marlon Bundo? Which of you know about his books? Yes, that's right. I said books. And I'm so glad that I did because I can promise I wouldn't have spent a cent on Pence's version. In recent days, the Pences (our Vice President's family) have written a children's book about the rabbit they own and his life in the White House. Now, naturally, I think many of us are well aware of Mike Pence's backward and disturbing views, particularly where LGBTQ+ are concerned. Well, John Oliver has taken his book and written a better one. And boy, was it beautiful. I've already bought the audiobook and ordered two physical copies, one of which I intend to give to my three-year-old niece who currently lives with my Trump supporting father. And I'm so incredibly excited. A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo, or the Better Bundo Book, by Marlon Bundo himself (with the help of Jill Twiss) and illustrated by E.G.Keller tells the tale of Mike Pence's bunny as he lives in the White House and eventually falls in love with another male bunny. I think it comes as no surprise that the villain in this book has an uncanny resemblance to Mike Pence himself as he angrily shouts, "Boy bunnies can't marry boy bunnies!" Well, I think we're all here to tell this villain what ludicrous nonsense that statement is. Hopefully, one day, he'll listen. All proceeds from the sales of this book will be going to The Trevor Project and AIDS United, which just becomes even more of a good reason to buy this book. I definitely urge everyone to go ahead and have a look, maybe buy a copy or three. You can also get a free e-book copy for donating to the charities. And you should also watch this amazing video from last week's episode of Last Week Tonight since it's got a beautifully animated version of the beginning of the book, featuring the audiobook narrators Jim Parsons, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jeff Garlin, Ellie Kemper, John Lithgow, Jack McBrayer, and RuPaul. I listened to the audiobook last night, and believe me, it's so worth it. I can't wait to share this with everyone I know.

Honestly, I didn't know what to expect. I saw that John Oliver (or one of his writers) wrote a book 'in response' to the Pence family's own book about their bunny, Marlon Bundo. So I just assumed it was a parody. But it isn't! It may have started that way - I don't know - but it became a lovely story the family can read together. Personally, I prefer the audiobook. A lot of famous people donated their time and voices to telling the story, and it allows us to enjoy it even more.
