Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale

Author(s): Mo Willems

Picture Books

Merging expressive cartoon network-esque illustrations with beautiful black and white photographs of Brooklyn, this funny story tells how Trixie and Knuffel Bunny's trip to the laundromat with Dad goes terribly wrong when Trixie realizes some bunny's been left behind! Her attempts to alert Dad all the way home are unsuccessful, until Mum points out that Knuffel Bunny is missing and the family hotfoot it back to the laundromat. Fortunately, KB is safe, if a little wet.

When Trixie says, “Aggle flaggle klabble,” and “blaggle plabble,” etc., what does she mean? Are these words? Are the words “Knuffle Bunny” Trixie’s real first words? What makes a word a word? What makes gibberish gibberish? Do we need words in order to communicate?
