This cartoon book named "Book of Bunny Suicides: Little Fluffy Rabbits Who Just Don't Want To Live Anymore" is being pulled from the shelves in China after a 12 year old committed suicide and four other kids attempted to kill themselves.
The book is filled with cartoons of a cute bunny trying to kill itself in bizarre and often improbable ways, and is more morbid humor than kid's book. "The cartoon bunny's attempts to commit suicide are ridiculous. They're obviously meant to be funny. The pressures those poor children face come from reality, not a comic book," said the book publisher's marketing director.
