A few weeks ago, Mike Pence’s pet rabbit, Marlon Bundo, posted on his Instagram account that he was “patiently waiting until I can tell you all some really exciting news! It’s so hard!” followed by the zippered-lips emoji. If, like us, you’ve been refreshing Marlon’s page every day since then, you were finally rewarded today with said news: The rabbit has a book deal. Marlon Bundo’s A Day in the Life of the Vice President is due out March 19. It was written by Pence’s daughter Charlotte Pence (who also runs Marlon’s Instagram account) and illustrated by Second Lady Karen Pence. As the title suggests, it’ll feature Marlon following “Grampa” Mike Pence around for a day as he does vice-presidential things.
A press release for the book reportedly calls him “a national celebrity!”, which may be a stretch. Regardless, congrats, Marlon — we hope your advance was 10,000 carrots.
