Wed Wabbit

Publisher: David Fickling Books

Don't be fooled by the cutesy title. The particularly 'Wabbit' in the story is anything but sweet! Fidge is a clever, slightly cynical 11 year old who is flung into the world of her little sister Minnie's favourite story - the world of the Wimbley Woos, creatures of many different hues who only speak in rhyme. Fidge must solve a multitude of ludicrous puzzles to escape with only her awful cousin Graham and various toys that have come alive to help her. And if she fails not only will she be stuck in the world of the Wimbley Woos where Wed Wabbit rules with an iron paw, but Minnie will die -  as the poor girl is in a coma after being knocked over by a car, an accident caused by Fidge (and the glassy eyed Wed Wabbit).

It's a surreal and strange tale that works because author, Carnegie and Costa children's Book Award shortlisted Lissa Evans, is a comic genius. This book is seriously laugh out loud funny and the writing sparkles with wit. A surprising, hilarious and read to be savoured that may help pre-teens to appreciate their home and family, and encourage all to take a careful look at the facial expressions of soft toys.
