Escape from Hat is the story of Leek, an especially talented lucky rabbit in an especially unlucky situation. When a fateful magic trick sends Leek tumbling into the land of Hat, the rabbit yearns only to return to the human boy he's sworn to protect. But the dark realm of Hat is ruled by black cats, whose job it is to spread bad luck among us all. When Millikin discovers that his nemesis now journeys through his own back yard, the cat commands his dark legions to find Leek and his faithful companions, with the help of their insidious machines, the Dimmer-Dammers. Meanwhile, in the world that has a sun, young Cecil Bean is left without any luck at all - good or bad - as his personal black cat searches madly for his own white rabbit. Thus Cecil embarks on his own journey to find the sinister magician who first cast his rabbit into peril. From rickety caravans to gargantuan sea monsters, the parallel journeys of a boy and his rabbit are a reminder that love and friendship are the greatest magics of all. Adam Kline presents a classic tale of humor, charm, and epic proportion, brought to life by the vibrant illustrations of Brian Taylor, which tread a delicious line between traditional fantasy and contemporary pop. This is a book to keep, to give, to read curled in a corner and aloud at bedtime, for both the young and the simply young at heart.

We all have good luck and bad, courtesy of our very own white rabbits and black cats. One rarely ever notices them of course, because they're so exceptionally clever. Cecil Bean has certainly never noticed his. But when shadowy Millikin crosses Leek's path, rather than Cecil's, the hapless rabbit finds himself cast into a savage realm of peril and misfortune. So begins Leek's quest to return to his boy, whose luck has turned for the worse.About the Author:
