More About the Author

With a degree in art, Marilyn always assumed she would be an illustrator. But when, early in her career, she was presented with an opportunity to write, she seized it and quickly discovered that she had found her true love. No sad, sappy stories for her, however. She likes to make herself laugh and with that her characters usually end up looking pretty silly for one reason or another.

Her first children's book featured a fastidious little English boy named Alistair Grittle and was originally created for the English publisher, Hamish Hamilton, as well as for Simon & Schuster in the United States. Having created a boy with such perfect behavior, she then turned her attention to a not so perfectly behaved little boy. His name was P.J. Funnybunny, and he has existed for many years in a series of books for Random House, including highly prestigious spots in the Dr. Seuss Cat In the Hat series.

Marilyn's television credits include two PBS Reading Rainbow programs featuring Alistair, an Alistair program for the BBC, three ABC Weekend Specials featuring P.J. Funnybunny, and a show based on her children's book, "Elizabeth and Larry", for Showtime's Shelley Duvall's Bedtime Stories.

Between 1999 and 2004, The Disney Channel produced three Original Movies based on Marilyn's book, "Zenon, Girl of the 21st Century". Each of Disney's Zenon movies had exceptionally high ratings, with "Zenon, Girl of the 21st Century" and "Zenon the Zequel" among the highest rated shows in the history of The Disney Channel.

In 2004, Playhouse Disney began production on Marilyn's animated series, "Handy Manny". "Handy Manny" premiered September 16, 2006, as the highest rated Playhouse Disney series premiere of all time. Since its debut, "Handy Manny" has averaged approximately 2 million viewers a week, has generated consistent critical acclaim and has developed a deeply loyal audience.

In 2009, Marilyn was nominated for an Emmy Award as Executive Producer of Handy Manny in the category of "Outstanding Special Class Animated Program".

Format: Paperback
My son has had this book for several years and very much enjoys it.

This delightful story follows a bow-tie wearing P.J. Funnybunny as he and his three friends--Ritchie the raccoon, Buzz the beaver and Potts the pig--set out to go on a camping trip.

P.J.'s sister, Honey Bunny, asks if she and her friend Donna Duck can come along. "Camping is not for girls", P.J. lectures.

The rest of the story shows all the "hard" work that P.J. and friends experience as they establish their camp. P.J. even tells a campfire story so scary that he frightens HIMSELF!

Then, two "ghosts" appear--scaring the beegeezus out of the boys...who then run home. But, when P.J.'s mom ask what happened--they all lie.

But Honey Bunny and Donna know what happened!

In addition to being a clever story, P.J. Funnybunny provides a great opportunity for parents to discuss the topic of lying with their children--not to mention gender equality!

This book is a Step 2 "Step Into Reading" book by Random House and is geared towards 5-6 year olds. (I have more recent Step 2 books and this one seems a bit more complex/longer than recent Step 2 books.) Step 2 books tend to have basic vocabulary, short sentences and simple plot lines. So, it's a good book for beginning readers--as well as a good story for bedtime.

At first I thought this book was a little negative for girls because PJ and his friend kept telling his sister and her friends that camping is not for girls. But even my three year old daughter understood that the boys were the ones who did not know what they were doing. The ending allows for discussion on telling the whole truth.

The reviewer who wrote the review "Very Clever!" summarized the book very well. But I don't agree with the assessment. I bought it for my 2.5 year old who loves the "It isn't easy being a bunny", but I don't like the themes in this one of keeping girls out, saying girls can't do things, and then of ghosts as well! She hadn't learned about ghosts and being scared of them, but now she talks about it quite a bit. She DID want to read the book 3 times in a row....

This is a level 2 reading book...it's more on the higher end of the level 2 book so if your child has just merged into level 2 they would have difficulty with this book but a great one to 'keep at it'.

PJ Funnybunny is a rabbit that has three other close friends a beaver, raccoon and a pig. They decide in this adventure to go camping. PJ's little sister and her friend want to go along but they say "camping isn't for girls" They have to trek up a big mountain at the top they say that would have been to hard for girls. They continue to put the tent up and get ready to bunk down for the night. PJ tells a ghost story that even scares him...they hear a noise and look out and what do they find?.... a GHOST!!!!! TWO GHOST!!! They run back to PJ's house all the while his sister is watching him through the window she and her friend know about the ghost...

My almost 3 year old granddaughter giggled at the end when I told her "see the girls knew where the ghost was" it shows a picture of the two girls looking in the window with the white ghost costumes in their hands

I thought the book would be perfect for our 4 year old grandson, who loves to camp. However he found the book scary and would not even finish reading it, but his Mom told one day he may want to see how the book ends. So be careful that your reader is mature enough for this book.

This is a fun camping story for preschool/kindergarten. I look forward to using it for teaching this summer. I think my grandchildren, who are beginner readers, will also enjoy it!
