Vice Presidential Bunny, Marlon Bundo, Gets Children’s Book

Life is pretty sweet for the BOTUS (Bunny of the United States).  He is the first bunny ever to ride Air Force Two.  He has nearly 17,000 followers on Instagram. And now he is starring in a new children’s book.

 

Marlon Bundo’s A Day in the Life of The Vice President is written by Charlotte Pence, daughter of Vice President Mike Pence, and illustrated by her mother Karen. It is narrated by Marlon and explains to children what the Vice President does at his job all day.

Charlotte Pence originally got Marlon when she was a student at DePaul University and needed a rabbit for a film project.  According to The Washington Post, Pence’s roommate suggested they name him after Marlon Brando after discovering that he was a natural in front of the camera.  Unable to resist a good pun, Pence named him Marlon Bundo, and thus a star was born.

 

With the exception of one Secret Service member, Marlon’s face is the only one that appears in the book.  He will also be making several public appearances on the press tour to promote the book, which all of his adoring fans will surely appreciate.
