Big Bad Bun

By Jeanne Willis
Illustrated by Tony Ross

This Willis-Ross collaboration is guaranteed to amuse all ages, but especially anyone who has ever gone home with a bad school report!

There never was a rabbit as bad as Big Bad Bun. Or so you'd think if you read the letter which he left on his bed after school one day...but it turns out Big Bad Bun (whose real name is actually Fluff) might not be as bad as he makes out. His school report aside, that is!

  • Life sales for Willis/Ross collaborations are over two million copies, and Tony Ross is the UK's biggest illustrator.
  • Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross won the Smarties Prize for their previous collaboration, Tadpole's Promise.
  • 'This picture book for older readers is clever, has lots of potential for schools and just made me laugh out loud' The Bookseller
