Big Mean Mike

author: Michelle Knudsen
illustrator: Scott Magoon

Big Mean Mike is the biggest, toughest dog in the whole neighborhood. 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 thatís just the way he likes it. But one day a tiny, fuzzy bunny shows up in his car. Mike canít believe it! Before anyone can see, he puts the bunny down on the sidewalk and drives away. When the tiny, fuzzy bunny shows up again ó and this time brings a friend ó Mike tells them both to get lost. Big mean dogs do not hang out with tiny, fuzzy bunnies! But gosh, those bunnies sure are cute. . . . From best-selling author Michelle Knudsen and illustrator Scott Magoon comes a comical lesson about how keeping up your image is not nearly as fun as being your own quirky self.

A laugh-out-loud funny story about not worrying what others think ó even if youíre big and tough, and your friends are fuzzy and cute.
