What if you used the name of the rabbit and the name of the MC? So it'd be something like THE DREW AND TINY series. Or you could give the bunny a full name: The TINY MONTGOMERY series. Or you could use the grade of the MC: The SIXTH GRADE RABBIT series.

Book Talk / I Heart You You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder

I gave books to the kiddos in our middle school carpool, and one of the girls really likes poignant/sad stories...so I thought this book would be perfect. Here's the story she told me this morning (I gave her the book on Weds):

She was reading the book after her science final and noticed that the boy sitting next to her kept scooting closer. She didn't like people reading over her shoulder, so she shifted away, and he said, "Hey, I want to read!"

"This is a love story. You want to read this?" she asked. She thought he was teasing her.

"Well, I know it's fake and all, but --"

"Then you don't need to read over my shoulder," she said, turning her back on him.

But he just scooted closer and said, "Aw, come on.  I want to see what happens next."

She thought he was still kidding, but she humored him...only to realize he truly was reading it. Because he read slower than she did, she had to pause at the bottom of each page and wait for him to signal he was ready for the next page. When class was over, he was bummed that he wouldn't get to finish the book...so the kids told me I should get him the book too. :grin3

(Btw, he's a jock and one of the 'cool' kids...he was on my son's bball team last year and plays football, as well.)

(Oh, and K, the girl who got the book, told me she *loves* it and can't stop reading it every chance she gets!)

When I tweet something like this, I write up a short blurb then paste in the link address. Here's what I wrote--you can use something similar or retweet mine if you want. https://twitter.com/MindyAlyseWeiss/status/546150660191043584

Thanks, guys!

Wow, I didn't expect anyone to actually like "The Rabbit Ate My Series"! I guess maybe I'll stick with that. Only drawback, as Marianne mentioned, is if I opt to go with another verb for Books Two and Three. Will it still work then?

Marianne, the bunny's name is Tiny and I'm actually working on a series of short story spinoffs (to publish between novel releases) called "Tiny Tales." But I don't want to use that for the main series' name as I think it may cause confusion for readers.

Thanks!

Rue

I like The Rabbit Ate My Series, too. Or possibly just The Rabbit Ate, and librarians will call it The Rabbit Ate series.

I so agree with the sound of "The Rabbit Ate Series", but what if some titles (such as ruecole already mentioned) don't begin with "Rabbit Ate", but rather add a different verb to rabbit?
