Big Mean Mike
author: Michelle Knudsen
illustrator: Scott Magoon
Big Mean Mike is the biggest, toughest dog in the whole neighborhood, and everyone knows it. So when a tiny, fuzzy bunny shows up one day, Mike tells it to get lost. Big mean dogs do not hang out with tiny, fuzzy bunnies! But the bunny keeps returning with more friends . . . and they 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.
“It’s rare to find a book that will appeal to both the lovers of monster trucks and the kids who go into raptures at the sight of a fuzzy little critter; this is that book.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
