John Oliver is selling a kids’ book about Mike Pence’s rabbit. But there’s … a twist.

Believe it or not, two kids’ books about Mike Pence’s family pet rabbit, Marlon Bundo, were just released.

But they tell wildly different tales.

One of them, “Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice President,” is a story created by the Pence family about their furry creature’s experiences living in Washington.

Perfectly innocent. Right? Eh, not quite.

On a new episode of “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver,” the TV host spotted something discouraging about Marlon Bundo’s book tour.

It stops by Focus on the Family — a vehemently anti-LGBTQ group that opposes a number of basic human rights for queer people and has a history of supporting gay conversion therapy (a harmful practice that attempts to change a person’s sexual orientation).

The vice president, who is one of the most anti-LGBTQ legislators in the country, is a big fan of the organization. Naturally.

With that in mind, the “Last Week Tonight” team decided to make their own rabbit-inspired book too: “A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo.”

“You’ll notice right away that our rabbit has a bow tie, so there’s that,” Oliver pointed out about the differences between the two publications on the March 18, 2018, show. But there’s an even more striking contrast: In “A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo,” Marlon is gay. He falls in love with another boy rabbit in the garden.

Yes, the book is for kids. Yes, it’s real. And yes, it’s actually for sale.

The best part? All of the proceeds from the “Last Week Tonight” book benefit two terrific groups helping LGBTQ people.

One is The Trevor Project, a crisis intervention nonprofit that helps struggling LGBTQ youth, and the other is AIDS United, an organization aimed at ending HIV/AIDS in the U.S.  

“Those are two great reasons to buy this book,” Oliver said. “Another is that selling more books than Pence will probably really piss him off.”

“Last Week Tonight” has a page where you can find out how to get your own copy of “A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo,” and you can watch Oliver’s segment on the book below:
