Review

Lord and Lady Bunny: Almost Royalty!

written by Polly Horvath, illustrated by Sophie Blackall

After their stint as “Detectives Extraordinaire!,” Mr. and Mrs. Bunny are in need of a new profession. Mrs. Bunny has some lofty aspirations and decides that becoming the queen would quite suite her. Wanting to please Mrs. Bunny (or wanting to stop her from carrying on about it), Mr. Bunny books their place on a cruise ship to England, where they discover their good, albeit human, friend Madeline traveling across the pond as well.
 
Madeline wants nothing more than to build up a college fund and secure her future as a scholar. Unfortunately, her flaky, hippie parents have only $6.27 to their name. When her father unexpectedly inherits a sweet shoppe in the quaint English village of Bellyflop, Madeline dares to hope that her dream of a university education may actually come true. But managing a candy store proves cumbersome for her unfocused and zany parents. Fortunately, Mr. and Mrs. Bunny are there to offer many clever ideas and encouragement. Can the Bunny duo salvage the sweet shoppe and Madeline’s chance for a bright future, all while attempting to obtain their coveted place in the British monarchy?
 

Horvath infuses the novel with an incredibly lively voice and creates a laugh-out-loud story that will enthrall both young readers and adults of all ages.

In this hilarious sequel to MR. AND MRS. BUNNY--- Detectives Extraordinaire! the title rabbits continue to entertain readers with their outlandish schemes and spontaneous antics. The bickering and the snarky asides from Mr. and Mrs. Bunny provide endless amusement and surprise appearances by certain members of the royal family, and even J.K. Rowling (a.k.a “Oldwhatshername”), make this an adventure never to be forgotten. Horvath infuses the novel with an incredibly lively voice and creates a laugh-out-loud story that will enthrall both young readers and adults of all ages.
