Little Bunny is tired of being the smallest. But thanks to some Christmas magic and an enchanted tree, he gets teenier still-- and has a BIG adventure.

It’s not fair! Little Bunny doesn’t like being the smallest one in the family. Now it’s Christmas Eve, and his favorite shiny red fire-engine ornament is way up high in the tree. Little Bunny is too small to reach it, but too big to climb the tree. And he so loves that fire engine. He wishes he could ride in it for real! With Christmas Eve magic and help from some new friends, Little Bunny has the adventure of his life on a night when anything is possible.
