“There is a new superhero in town - Thumperino Superbunny!” Thumperino Superbunny and the Christmas Star Caper, the second book a series by author Amber L. Spradlin chronicling the adventures of a house rabbit blessed with super-powers and a duty to make the world a better place, was just released for Christmas 2012 and has already reached number two in US sales.
Pacific Book Review heralds Thumperino as “…a kind and courageous character that shows just what a hero he really is…an enjoyable book for children and parents…a quaint story with emphasis on the basic lessons that children should learn like, deductive reasoning, determination, sharing, teamwork, sensitivity to the needs of others and acts of selflessness. I highly recommend it.”
In this tale, Thumperino discovers that the star has been stolen from atop the tree in Christmas Tree Plaza. The holiday will be ruined for millions of children if the star isn't found in time for Christmas. He sets out on a mission to return this pinnacle of Christmas joy to New York City. Along the way, he uncovers a vile plot, rescues his fellow rabbits from an evil villain, and wins the trust of a special new friend. Most importantly, he learns a valuable lesson about overcoming physical challenges and stumbles upon strange new information about the source of his own super-powers.
