THIS BOOK WAS BASED ON A TRUE STORY that occurred during the summer of 2016 when the author and her children stopped for a quick bite at a Mexican restaurant near their favorite playground in Tribeca.  After the real Just Bunny was rescued, the author wanted to find a way to thank the brave men and women of the FDNY. She, too, had been rescued from a fire in her apartment building on April 16, 2007, and therefore knew firsthand of their bravery and selflessness.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the NYFF Burn Center Foundation in recognition of the service and sacrifice of the men and women of the FDNY. 

The author plans to expand Just Bunny into a series highlighting the people and organizations who make New York City run and keep New Yorkers safe.  Although essentially New York-based stories, these books hope to inspire respect and gratitude for Firefighters, police officers and public servants everywhere! Stay tuned for the next title in the series Just Bunny and the Great Police Pursuit.
