Lord and Lady Bunny - Almost Royalty by Polly Horvath is a little hard to follow. Some people LIKE all that jumping around so...
Wait! This is a book about BUNNIES!!! Jumping around? Bunnies? Of course! NOW, I get it. You can't tell a story about bunnies without a lot of motion. Can't be done.
So, now that Mrs. Bunny is a famous bunny author, she has decided NOT to be a detective any longer (see Mr. and Mrs. Bunny - Detectives Extraordinaire). She wants to be queen. Is that so much to ask?
The Bunnys' human friend, Madeline, is very worried about her college fund. Her parents have $6.27 between them. But, Mildred, Madeline's mother has plans to buy 30 more acres for an Organic Farm.
Somehow, everyone ends up taking a cruise ship to Jolly Olde Englande! Pop-Tarts are involved; also, thieving hedgehogs, snobbery, and magic.
I love Mr. Bunny - for so he is called - and Mrs. Bunny and the way they tell stories. I also like their enthusiasms and need for adventure.
And the humans in these books are equally likeable - Madeline and her hippie-dippie parents and her brilliant eccentric Uncle and her best friend, Katherine. And Prince Charles. And Starlight Heavens - well, she is not actually likeable - at all - but with a name like that? Come on.
There is a very famous author - besides Mrs. Bunny, that is - in this book, known as Oldwhatshername, and a not so famous translator. These cameo appearances just add to the mayhem.
Just sit back and enjoy a trip across the Pond with the Bunnys and their human friends.
