About this title

Synopsis:

It's a hoot. Wolf obviously gets as big a kick out of the convoluted plotting and the exaggerated private-eye lingo as he does the interactions between humans and Toons. The ingredients make a rich confection for anyone addicted to pop culture.
Wichita Eagle

A marvelous adventure in Toontown, a hare-sute tour de farce. In this latest cotton-tale, Roger is back with the same madcap characterizations we loved in the film.
Ottawa Citizen

Wolf has managed to take a potential one-joke premise and milk it for all it's worth.
Wilmington Sunday News Journal

Those thespian Toons are back. Readers are going to love it. And the film is going to be great.
Washington Times

Murder and mayhem in Hollywood's shady underworld. A humorous and intelligent mystery.
Staten Island Sunday Advance

Review:

Who P-P-P-Plugged Roger Rabbit? is as bright and fresh and fascinating as the original.  Fans of the first book and film are in for a Toonful treat.
Michael Eisner / Chairman of the Board and CEO / The Walt Disney Company

Reprint of the entire first page of the novel under the heading Auspicious Beginnings.
People Magazine

Unabashed P-P-P-Plug!  If you like Roger Rabbit, you'll adore Who P-P-P-Plugged Roger Rabbit? by Gary K. Wolf, the man who created Roger and the rest of the Toon crew.
The Toontown Tattler (Disney Comics)

A good, fun read.  Eddie Valiant out-Marlowes Marlow and out-Spades Spade.  The humorous strength of Who P-P-P-Plugged Roger Rabbit? lies in Wolf's one-liners and quirky send-ups of 1940s hard-boiled detective patter.  The bodies drop like names at a Hollywood party.  Wolf's prose is consistently witty, the plot is fast-paced and quirky, and he can craft a decent mystery with a sense of fun.
 Boston Herald

Involving reading which will be enjoyed by fans.
The Bookwatch

Fast, funny, and sus-p-p-p-pensful.
Nassau Herald

The Toonish imagery, the slapstick humor, the double entendre dialogue all contribute to turn this book into a Technicolor vision as you read. From the first "P-O-W" to the last "K-A-B-L-O-O-E-Y," the fun is never ending.
Nashville Banner

The welcome mat is out again at Toontown. Expect the usual surreal hi-jinks. In Wolf's crazy universe, a never-never-land gag is always around the corner.
Columbus Dispatch

Proclaimed Best Fantasy Novel of 1991
Science Fiction Chronicle

Wolf freely mixes Toons and human characters in situations both real and surreal. It's a fast and funny story made up of equal parts of cartoon pratfalls, tough-guy detective action and sly humor. It's an endlessly entertaining tale with jokes and puns that leap at you like out-of-control cartoon speech balloons.
Austin American-Statesman

Stay Tooned. If you enjoyed the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit, you'll have to run out to the bookstore and buy its sequel. It's a good, hare-raising mystery.
Newport News Times-Herald and Daily Press

Eddie Valiant, the hard-boiled private eye who makes Sam Spade look like Little Lord Fauntleroy, takes the lumps and solves the mysteries while spouting the most incredible array of similes ever committed to paper. There haven't been such characters since the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion. The wildest adventure since Alice went through the looking glass. The highest form of comedy.
Louisville Courier-Journal

When the folks at Disney make P-P-P-Plugged into a m-m-m-movie, I'll be f-f-f-first in line for a ticket.
Indianapolis Star

Fun reading.
Reno Gazette-Journal
