BOTUS Marlon Bundo to star in a children's book

Vice President Mike Pence's pet rabbit is making his literary debut. The expertly named bunny Marlon Bundo is the star of a new children's book, written by Pence's daughter Charlotte Pence and illustrated by second lady Karen Pence.

In the book, titled Marlon Bundo's A Day in the Life of the Vice President, the first bunny follows "Grampa [Pence] around all day, as a BOTUS should, while he goes about his duties as vice president," Marlon Bundo explained in an Instagram post. (Yes, the rabbit has an Instagram account.)

A portion of the book's proceeds will be donated to charities of Charlotte and Karen's choosing: The Washington Examiner reported that Charlotte has selected "a nonprofit dedicated to abolishing human trafficking," while Karen chose "an art therapy program."

The book comes out March 19 — and it looks like Marlon Bundo might be doing book signings. Becca Stanek

A Big Announcement for my Friends! Coming to a bookstore near you on March 19! Mom wrote a children's book about me and Grandma painted beautiful watercolors in it, too! In the book, I follow Grampa around all day, as a BOTUS should, while he goes about his duties as Vice President! Also, Mom and Grandma are donating a portion of their proceeds to charity! Check out my Instagram story for more info (and to pre-order)! (Next time I do a book signing, I'm going to practice my paw print beforehand! Don't worry, it was bunny-safe ink ☺️)
