Synopsis: Knuffle Bunny Too is the sequel to the much loved original, Knuffle Bunny. In this book, Trixie is now in preschool and can speak, and often does. She is so excited to bring her Knuffle Bunny to school until she realizes her classmate, Sonja, has the same Knuffle Bunny. After many arguments with Sonja about which bunny is best, the teacher takes them both away and gives them back at the end of the day. It doesn’t take long before Trixie discovers the bunny she was given is not her bunny. A midnight adventure ensues as Trixie and Sonja endeavor to switch their bunnies. The story ends with the girls bonding over their once lost and now found bunny friends.
