Publisher's Description

From National Book Award winner Polly Horvath comes a hopping mad mystery that's perfect for Easter baskets everywhere!

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 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 Newbery Honor-winning author Polly Horvath, and beautifully illustrated by Caldecott Medal winner Sophie Blackall, here is a book that kids will both laugh over and love.

"National Book Award-winner Polly Horvath's latest, a rabbity romp complete with whimsical illustrations and a quirky cast of characters, has both the look and feel of a classic children's book," raves The Washington Post.

Editorial Reviews

Starred Review, Booklist, February 15, 2012:
"An instant classic, with a contemporary resonance and a tone of yesteryear, fairly begging to be read aloud."

Starred Review, The Horn Book Magazine, January 1, 2012:
"Look not for logic; this is a romp."

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, December 12, 2011:
"Energetic pacing, witty prose, and snappy dialogue coalesce in what is hopefully the first of many escapades for these unforgettable, bumbling would-be sleuths."

Review, The Washington Post, May 2, 2012:
"National Book Award-winner Polly Horvath’s latest, a rabbity romp complete with
whimsical illustrations and a quirky cast of characters, has both the look and feel of a classic children’s book . . . Forget logic, the real fun here is in the detours, dead-ends and dangling clues that destroy all literary conventions."

Review, The New York Times Book Review, May 13, 2012:
"Quite amusing….[her stories] give younger readers something they can readily grasp and enjoy"
