In Thumperino Superbunny and the Pirates of the High Seas, Thumperino goes on vacation to a tropical island and soon finds it’s not all fun in the sun. Someone is dumping garbage in the sea and it’s up to Thumperino Superbunny to get to the bottom of the mess. But his mission may be doomed when he unexpectedly tangles with a band of pirates. Will a surprising new super-power and the skills he learned at the library help him save the day or will he have to walk the plank?
In Thumperino Superbunny and the Christmas Star Caper he discovers that the star has been stolen from atop the tree in Christmas Tree Plaza. The holiday will be ruined for millions of children if the star isn’t found in time for Christmas. He sets out on a mission to return this pinnacle of Christmas joy to New York City. Along the way, he uncovers a vile plot, rescues his fellow rabbits from an evil villain, and wins the trust of a special new friend. Most importantly, he learns a valuable lesson about overcoming physical challenges and stumbles upon strange new information about the source of his own super-powers.
I found these three books to actually be a very good read. I am a strong reader of sci fi and fantasy novels so a superbunny was easy for me to get my head around, and it helped that the story flowed so comfortably. Overall these books were definitely a very fun and light hearted read.
Since they were aimed at a younger audience I let my children have a read as well. While the books were a bit old for my 5 year old both of my other kids enjoyed them a lot. They were pleased with the stories and quickly went through all three books.
I would definitely recommend that everyone take the opportunity to enjoy these delightful and fun stories about a superbunny and his antics as he tries to save the day. They would make an excellent Easter Gift to your little ones.
