'Happy Bunny, Honey' by Davey Barrett would appear to be an innocent, illustrated story about a rabbit that is looking for love. However, upon closer inspection and a deeper read it is evident that the short book is more geared to an adult audience than to a child that wants to read about the exploits of an Easter bunny.

Featuring illustrations by Chris Tucci, the book features an aging rabbit as its protagonist, who is constantly perusing her local bar in hopes of meeting an attractive male rabbit. The material delves into the heart-retching, and sometimes unsatisfying trysts that preface finding that one true love in both a dark and humorous way.

Using rabbits rather than humans was a choice made by the author to fully embody the way that the human approach to lovemaking encompasses both animalistic urges and the innocent desire to be loved, which has been engrained since childhood.
