A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo
Jill Twiss, illustrated by EG Keller, 2018

Read Harder 2018 Challenge: A one-sitting book

Premise: John Oliver's prank on Mike Pence turned charitable-children's-book sensation. 

Okay, we all know the very existence of this book is hilarious. If you didn't buy a copy, you might just be in the minority at this point. We had to wait a month for our copy because the publishers didn't print nearly enough for demand.

However, did you also know it's adorable?

It's sweet and wholesome and just overall like a warm hug. With soft, colorful illustrations and gently repetitive text, I'd say it's appropriate for any kids who are old enough to understand a book with a simple plot.

There are a few allusions to the actual VP having a boring job, and the villainous stink bug who objects to our hero's happiness is obviously modeled off the same. However, these blend into the background, leaving you with a charming story about a little community that comes together so love can win.

5 Stars - An Awesome Book
