Introducing Isabel, aka Bunjitsu Bunny! She is the BEST bunjitsu artist in her school, and she can throw farther, kick higher, and hit harder than anyone else! But she never hurts another creature . . . unless she has to.
This series of brief stories about Isabel's adventures are a beguiling combination of child-friendly scenarios and Eastern wisdom perfect for the youngest readers.
From the author: I co-run a martial arts school - Green Hill Martial Arts and this was inspired by some of our students, including the key character, Isabel.
Praise for Tales of Bunjitsu Bunny:
"Spare ink illustrations appear on every page, skillfully balancing humor, bunjitsu action, and understated grace. Like Isabel herself, this one’s a winner in unexpected ways." - Publishers Weekly
"Himmelman simplifies his picture-book style with calligraphic black lines and delivers a series of Zen lessons touched with gentle humor." - Kirkus Reviews
"Himmelman tells delightful short stories about a little bunny named Isabel, who is mighty in spirit . . . makes for a good read-aloud." - School Library Journal
The whole action-packed series!
ALL books in the series are Junior Library Guild Selections!
And this from a teacher in Indiana: "I teach a very “at risk” population of students, and your series speaks volumes to them about the virtues of peace, control, and patience in a way that is empowering and not patronizing. Since reading this series, I have seen a huge decrease in physical and verbal confrontations towards each other. So, first of all, thank you."
