Ben's Bunny Trouble is set in a near future in which the world has lost all its green space. When Ben decides that the city is not the best place for his bunnies, he embarks on an out-of-this-world journey to find them a better home. It takes a few false landings and help from a variety of aliens, but in the end, Ben finds his bunnies—which seem to have multiplied—a new place to live.

"This wordless picture book packs a huge story of belonging into its light-hearted illustrations, and little details will delight patient searchers on every page."
