Literature’s most endearing rabbits are back in this sequel to Mr. and Mrs. Bunny — Detectives Extraordinaire! While their human friend, Madeline, worries about saving money for college, Mrs. Bunny is more concerned about how to become a queen. Unexpectedly, Madeline’s family inherits a sweet shop (candy store!) in England, and it looks for a while as if everyone’s problems are solved. England proves to be full of eccentric characters, strange customs, and even royalty — but holding onto money is difficult for Madeline’s family, and becoming a queen proves harder than Mrs. Bunny expected.
Like the first book in this series, Lord and Lady Bunny is written by Mr. and Mrs. Bunny,* translated from the Rabbit by multi-award-winning author Polly Horvath, and beautifully illustrated by Sophie Blackall. It’s a sequel that children will laugh over and love.
*Mr. and Mrs. Bunny live in Rabbitville in in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. They have twelve children.
