Kaplan, creator of Disney's T.V. series Dog with a Blog. Betty Bunny doesn't know why she can only buy one toy in the toy store when she wants them all. Her family tells Betty Bunny she can't have everything she wants and come up with a lesson to teach her the value of money and spending limits. But the precocious bunny comes up with a hilarious loophole. Betty Bunny's preschool perspective and negotiating skills will leave you in stitches.

"Laugh-out-loud writing and spot-on characterizations convey a distinctive family with very relatable dilemmas."
"Kaplan again has his finger on the pulse of childhood insatiability . . . Audiences will recognize the impulses, celebrate the disaster, and take sly pleasure in Betty's victory over parental reason."
