Piggy Bunny is a vibrant and amusing tale about a little pig, named Liam, who believes that he is meant to be the Easter Bunny when he grows up. Despite being told that he is fine just the way he is, Liam wants to leave behind his piglet ways to reach his goal of becoming the bunny he was truly meant to be. Throughout the story, he practices the ways of the Easter Bunny, which include hopping, eating salad, and delivering eggs, none of which come naturally to him, especially eating salad. He wants his family to believe in his dream the same way that he does, but his older brother and sister are non-supportive of his goal, and his mother and father love him as a piglet. It is in his grandparents where Liam gains the support to reach his aspired form. His grandparents believe in him and give him a bunny suit which is the final step in his transformation. The suit doesn’t fit him quite right, but what he sees in the mirror when he is wearing it looks right to him.
