9780307980656: Lord and Lady Bunny--Almost Royalty!

This hilarious sequel to Mr. and Mrs. Bunny-Detectives Extraordinaire! is a bunny-rific "tail" that even includes a guest appearance by J. K. Rowling a.k.a. "Oldwhatshername". 

Madeleine wants nothing more than to save money for college, but her impractical, ex-hippie parents are broke. When the family unexpectedly inherits a sweet shoppe in England that has the potential to earn serious profit, they see an answer to all their problems. . . . Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Bunny—formerly of the detecting persuasion—are looking for new professions, and Mrs. Bunny decides she would like to be Queen. Soon they, too, are headed across the pond. Brought to you by National Book Award-winning author Polly Horvath and Caldecott Medal–winning illustrator Sophie Blackall, the adventures of Madeleine and the Bunnys are zanier than ever.

From Booklist:

In this frolicsome follow-up to Mr. and Mrs. Bunny—Detectives Extraordinaire! (2012), Madeleine and her hippie parents, Mildred and Flo, set off to England on a cruise ship, catapulted by a mystical box of cinnamon sugar Pop-Tarts, in search of fortune (Madeleine sensibly wants to augment her college fund, while Mildred dreams of an organic vegetable farm). As it happens, Mr. and Mrs. Bunny, no longer detectives but just as lovingly quarrelsome, are traveling on the same boat, with their own royal agenda: Mrs. Bunny aims to be the Queen. Madeleine has her friend Katherine for company, and Mr. and Mrs. Bunny have Mrs. Treaclebunny; together they plot and flounder, foiled by happenstance, rescued by coincidence, and propelled by synchronicity. Exploits abound, including hedgehog disguises (quills and superglue) and trained magical candy shops. Horvath holds all of this folly together with affectionate characterizations, dazzling wit, and an unflagging commitment to the winding narrative, with Blackall’s familiar ink-and-wash sketches embellishing the tone of skewed bemusement. Grades 3-6. --Thom Barthelmess

Book Description Schwartz & Wade. 1 Cloth(s), 2014. hard. Book Condition: New. In this hilarious sequel to Mr. and Mrs. Bunny—Detectives Extraordinaire!, young Madeleine wants to save money for college, but her ex-hippie parents are broke. When the family unexpectedly inherits a potentially profitable sweets shop in England, they see an answer to all their problems. Then whom should they meet on their steamship voyage but Mr. and Mrs. Bunny—formerly of the detecting persuasion—who are looking for new professions (Mrs. Bunny apparently has decided she would like to be Queen). National Book Award winner Polly Horvath again "translates" this memoir from Mrs. Bunny, for readers 8 to 13, while Caldecott Medalist Sophie Blackall illustrates the ensuing mayhem in ink drawings."Just as ridiculous, wacky, and humorous as Mr. and Mrs. Bunny, Detectives Extraordinaire. This romp has even less plot than the first, relishing in its own absurdity and remarkable coincidences, to the point that Mrs. Bunny even meets her translator (Horvath) at a book signing and discovers that the human author has been taking credit for Mrs. Bunny's first book. Guaranteed to delight anyone who loved the forward-driving action and vivacious wit of these good-hearted, unique characters the first time around."—School Library Journal"Madeleine has her friend Katherine for company, and Mr. and Mrs. Bunny have Mrs. Treaclebunny; together they plot and flounder, foiled by happenstance, rescued by coincidence, and propelled by synchronicity. Exploits abound, including hedgehog disguises (quills and superglue) and trained magical candy shops.
