Trixie, the headstrong toddler introduced in Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale (Hyperion, 2004), is a talkative preschooler now and still very attached to her Knuffle Bunny. Bringing her treasured toy to school one day, Trixie is crushed to find out that classmate Sonja has a Knuffle Bunny too. In that aching moment, her Knuffle Bunny is no longer one-of-a-kind. The girls begin quarreling until Ms. Greengrove intervenes, taking the stuffed animals away until the end of the day. Eventually, the rabbits are returned and the girls go their separate ways. It isn’t until the middle of the night that Trixie awakes with a panicked realization—she has the wrong Knuffle Bunny! With high drama, she convinces her parents that it is not an option to wait until morning: the exchange must happen now . This captivating sequel stands on its own as a testament to the trials of childhood (and parenthood). (Ages 3–6)
