Things are not what they seem at the Hopper Academy for Young Rabbits. Maureen, a problem rabbit from a bad neighborhood, has been caught smoking in the girl's lavatory. Peggy Sue, the psychically-gifted teacher's pet, senses something worse than mold between the walls of the mysterious mansion that houses the Academy, and headmistress Louise Hopper is convinced something Evil is stalking the empty halls. What can it mean? Who is the sinister woman Peggy Sue and Maureen encounter on Career Day? It's only after the disappearance of several students that Maureen must seek the assistance of Detective Ian O'Hara, a tough talking, hard drinking rabbit whose theories about the mystery are more frightening than the dangers they face in solving it! Fasten your seatbelts: "The Great Rabbit Rip-off" is not your grandmother's bedtime story. It's a ferociously funny, startlingly irreverent, and sometimes shocking tale of suspense, intrigue, and things even worse than murder! This is the book you would have read as a child...if your parents had allowed you to!
