The central character (at least in one sense) is Fluffy, a bunny who acts very much like a human four-year old; however, a description of the characters or the plot will not help you appreciate the uniqueness of this book. In fact, the plot is very much secondary to the development Fluffy's "daddy" goes though.
While reading Fluffy I had the very pleasurable experience of finding myself caring deeply for the characters, hoping for a happy end. Maybe I am jaded, but that has not happened in a long time. The storytelling is innovative and effective. The art is simple and lovely. As a whole, this extremely cute book is funny, profound and highly recommended. Fluffy defies categories.
"Fluffy, I'm not your real daddy-"
"Yes you are daddy"
"No, I'm a man and you're a bunny"
"I'm not a bunny"
I found this book wonderfully irresistible, even if it did leave me completely bewildered from time to time. Overall, it is a lovingly illustrated story of responsibility, unconditional love, despair and the unanswered questions in life.
Enough waffle. Buy fluffy!
The reason this story is charming and delightful is that the male romantic lead is accompanied by a baby rabbit (Fluffy) that thinks that male romantic lead is his father (and speaks and acts as a child would - the bunny, not the lead male).
If it were a real (cartoon) child, then the story would not be as charming or delightful, as other people’s children are not as charming or delightful as those other people think they are, as the saying goes. Also, they are very hard to portray as charming and delightful in a cartoon story without descending into caricature. I read a lot of comics, so I know this.
Anyway, the romantic male lead (Michael) is having a troubled relationship with the romantic female lead, who is also Fluffy’s nursery school teacher. He takes Fluffy to visit his parents in Sicily. Stuff happens, the two romantic leads resolve their emotional problems satisfactorily, many questions are explained one way or another as the story progresses - including why Fluffy likes going to McDonalds.
Read it and feel cheerful.
PS: My neighbour’s cat is called “Fluffy”, but he is not fluffy, and his name is actually the Hungarian for “fluffy”.
Is it not a mysterious and wonderful world that we live in?
PPS: The author does very good drawings of Continental locomotives and trains too.
