In this hilarious chapter book mystery, meet a girl whose parents have been kidnapped by disreputable foxes, and a pair of detectives that also happen to be bunnies! When Madeline gets home from school one afternoon to discover that her parents have gone missing, she sets off to find them. So begins a once-in-a-lifetime adventure involving a cast of quirky and unforgettable characters. There's Mr. and Mrs. Bunny, who drive a smart car, wear fedoras, and hate marmots; the Marmot, who loves garlic bread and is a brilliant translator; and many others. Translated from the Rabbit by National Book Award-winning author Polly Horvath, and beautifully illustrated by Sophie Blackall, here is a book that kids will both laugh over and love.

“Look not for logic; this is a romp.” (The Horn Book Magazine)
I love this author, but hate that she narrated this book. The voice she uses is a bit to cutesy, she doesn't distinguish very well between the voices of the different characters, and she also lisps and slurs her words together. I wanted to laugh while listening because the book really is quite funny, but the narration was too irritating. I'll just read the next book.
