The “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” team’s gay bunny book is officially outselling the Pence family’s bunny book.

“Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo” was introduced on Sunday as an alternative pick for the children’s book “Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice President,” written by Pence’s daughter Charlotte and illustrated by his wife, Karen.

In “A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo,” written by Jill Twiss and illustrated by EG Keller, Pence’s pet bunny Marlon is gay. Marlon meets Wesley, a boy bunny, and the two decide to get married.

The book is now the number one best-selling book on Amazon. The audiobook, which is voiced by Jim Parsons, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jeff Garlin, Ellie Kemper, John Lithgow, Jack McBrayer and RuPaul, is Audible’s number one best-seller.

All proceeds from the book will benefit the Trevor Project and AIDS United.
