Obert Skye, author of the best-selling Leven Thumps series, delivers a delightful mixture of offbeat mystery and laugh-out-loud humor in this thoroughly inventive adventure, the first in a trilogy.
Ten-year-old Perry Owens has learned everything he needs to know from comic books. So when Perry receives a troubling message from his favorite uncle, Zeke, he knows exactly what's wrong. Obviously, evil newts wearing trench coats must have kidnapped Zeke. Now they're holding him hostage somewhere on Bunny Island, the remote vacation destination that Zeke calls home.
On his own, Perry travels to Bunny Island, where dozens of bunnies are running wild. One in particular doesn't seem quite right. A creature this cute shouldn't exist in nature. Are there truly evil newts on the loose or something much stranger...and more disturbingly adorable?
