“Watership Down for the deeply sick. Very imaginative, very funny, very worrying if you're the author's mother.”—Richard Curtis, screenwriter, director, producer
Rabbits. We'll never quite know why, but sometimes they decide they've just had enough of this world—and that's when they start getting inventive. This cult hit and international bestseller follows over one hundred bunnies as they find ever more outlandish ways to do themselves in. From an encounter with the business end of Darth Vader's lightsaber, to supergluing themselves to a diving submarine, to hanging around underneath a loose stalactite, these bunnies are serious about suicide.
Illustrated in a stark and simple style, The Book of Bunny Suicides is a collection of hilarious and outrageous cartoons that will appeal to anyone in touch with their evil side.
