Battle Bunny by Jon Scieszka and Mac Barnett and Alex

Battle Bunny by Jon Scieszka and Mac Barnett and Alex; with pictures by Matthew Myers but mostly Alex is the funniest book I've read all year. The cover and pages look like they've been vandalized but actually Alex, a little boy and recipient of the book, has dramatically rewritten the story of Bunny's birthday with scribbles and drawings. What was supposed to be Bunny's happy celebration is transformed into a battle for the ages with Bunny as the villain and Alex as the hero. Rather than hopping through the woods and talking with cute animals, the power hungry Bunny wreaks havoc everywhere he goes. After the President of the United States implores Alex to save the day, he does, using clever tactics and his own special birthday powers.
