Overview

Holiday House's first graphic novel follows the wacky adventures of alien rabbits who want to take over the world!

The Wuv Bunnies have landed! When a carrot spaceship sets down in Hercules Smith's backyard and two large rabbits hop out, Hercules knows he's in for an interesting morning. The Wuv Bunnies warn Hercules that the evil Funny Bunnies have invaded the earth. It's up to Hercules to fend off the Wuv Bunnies' smooches (the rabbits just w-u-u-u-v to wuv!) and try to save the human race. Hilariously illustrated by Ethan Long, this humorous graphic novel will have readers rolling.

""Hilarious. . . Think Captain Underpants meets Star Trek.""—Dr. Teri Lesesne, Professor of Children's Literature, Sam Houston State University

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Chris Newsham
Hercules Smith awakes one Saturday morning to find a ten foot tall carrot-shaped space ship in his yard. Out of the hatch pops two large rabbits named Willy and Gwaad, as in "Willy happy to meet you!" and "Gwaad to meet you." They are the Wuv Bunnies from Outers Pace who like to tell corny jokes and think they are hilarious. The Wuv Bunnies have come to inform Hercules that he has been chosen to save the Earth from the sinister Funny Bunnies and their terrible weapon that turns kids into carrots. The black-and-white cartoon illustrations are reminiscent of the "Captain Underpants" series and they share a common audience of seven to ten year old boys. The short chapters with more pictures than words are ideal to draw in the reluctant reader, as are the last two pages filled with more jokes to share. The book and the jokes are full of groaners for adults but are perfect for their target age group. This book would be a popular addition to the elementary library collection and while it calls itself a graphic novel, it has much more text than the label would lead you to expect. Reviewer: Chris Newsham
School Library Journal

Gr 2-4

"I am Willy," proclaims a spacesuit-clad rabbit as he steps out of his carrot-shaped ship and into Hercules Smith's backyard. "Willy?" asks Hercules. "Willy happy to meet you," is the reply, and the first in an overabundance of groan-inducing jokes. The other half of the hyper and sappy Wuv Bunnies is Gwaad, as in "Gwadd to meet you!" They are determined to help Hercules save the Earth from enemy Funny Bunnies. Big Bad Bunny (B3), the Funny Bunny leader, puts his invasion in motion by planning to turn Hercules's classmates into carrots. He is ultimately thwarted by the boy's well-timed caramel throw into B3's mouthful of braces. Additional attempts at quirkiness, such as having one chapter written in the Wuv Bunny language "prin1Xtsh" and another solely composed of "HAs!" come off as filler. The use of footnotes as glib asides, the standard cartoon artwork, and even the sense of awareness and revelry at how bad the jokes are show that there is nothing new here.-Joanna K. Fabicon, Los Angeles Public Library

Kirkus Reviews
When evil, oversized alien rabbits land at Dingdale Elementary chool (the "S" has fallen off the sign so often that custodian Fuzzy Dustin refuses to fix it any more), it's up to young Hercules Smith and his slobbery pooch Sheldon to save the Earth-or at least the student body-from being transformed into carrots. Luckily (or maybe not), a pair of the titular Wuv Bunnies, heavily armed with kisses and truly toxic jokes, arrive from the Outers Pace Galaxy to help out. Elliott and Long milk this premise for all it's worth, dishing up a Captain Underpants-style mix of text and wild cartoons-the former well-stocked with authorial asides, the latter filled with big-toothed bunnies sporting antennae and high-fiving each other after each gag. Capped by a gratuitous barrage of extra jokes ("What did the duck say when she bought some lipstick? Just put it on my bill. HA! HA! HA! HA!"), this is all perfectly pitched to its audience and guaranteed to garner groans from the grown-ups. (Fantasy. 7-9)
