Award-winning duo Bill Richardson and Bill Pechet are back with another brilliantly funny and charmingly quirky picture book—My Bunny Lies Over the Ocean. When a beloved stuffed toy gets left at the beach and swept out to sea, all hands pitch in to see that poor bedraggled Bunny gets safely home. With its chorus of Bunny-smitten seagulls, super starfish rescue operation, accommodating whale, kind kangaroo, round-about postal adventure, and more, this hilarious romp will delight listeners young and old.
