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! Written by Mrs. Bunny, translated from the Rabbit by multi-award-winning author Polly Horvath, and beautifully illustrated by Sophie Blackall, Mr. and Mrs. Bunny — Detectives Extraordinaire! is a book that kids will both laugh over and love.
Suggested for ages 9-12, but a favourite with adults in the Groundwood office.
Starred reviews from Horn Book Magazine and Publishers Weekly
