HarperCollins, Nov 27, 2007 - Humor - 96 pages

"Think like a Star, act like a Star, eat like a Star, dress like a Star, and someday soon you can be just like Star!!!"—Star Von Bunny

She's got the determination of the Energizer bunny, the cool edge of Hello Kitty, the ego of Miss Piggy, and the wardrobe of Barbie. She's Star Von Bunny, a white rabbit with a vintage look and a modern attitude. With her sights set on fame, Star cozies up to all of the right people—Beyonce, Bono, and Christy Turlington, to name a few. Star wants to be a model/actress/whatever and she's determined to do what it takes to become one. An all white foods diet? Bring on the marshmallows and mashed potatoes! Hot yoga? No sweat! A rock star boyfriend, well-connected friends, cover shoots with Elle? As Star says, "I was made for this!" And she's proving it. She's a vixen at NY and LA's hottest spots, Gaultier has dressed her, and top fashion editors have featured her in their magazines.

Now, fans can follow Star's journey from obscurity in her suburban bedroom to red carpet success. Star Von Bunny grants her followers backstage access to the soft furry underbelly of the sometimes misunderstood fame machine.

Star Von Bunny is intent on making it in New York City as a model. Upon her arrival in NYC, Star quickly learns a few things about the business. First, she drops
the Von Bunny, even though she is descended from the famous Von Bunny clan (a small white lie, but since her dossier is made up of many of them, no harm done). She'll be like Twiggy, Cher, Madonna -- a true star by the name of Star. She also signs with Bored Model Management and creates her first calling card, along with several test shots for her portfolio.
Star has some special qualities that could work for or against her in the modeling business. She's beautiful, no doubt, but she's also furry. She's quite short (only 18 inches), but she also has near-perfect measurements (14", 14.5", 13"). She has a tail, but really, what other model in the world can use that as their claim to fame? Star wants to be a famous model, and what Star wants, Star gets.
This is a short, hilarious story of one bunny's attempt to make it big in the world of modeling. Parody or not, it's a fun read, and includes fabulous photos of Star in all her glory, along with many high-society models (although none of them can claim Star's gorgeous white fur and perky tail).
A portion of the proceeds from sales of STAR VON BUNNY will benefit Doctors Without Borders, which is just another reason to pick up a copy of this highly entertaining tale -- or tail.
