Lord and Lady Bunny—Almost Royalty!: 09/24/15
Lord and Lady Bunny—Almost Royalty! by Polly Horvath is the sequel to Mr. and Mrs. Bunny—Detectives Extraordinaire. Mrs. Bunny has decided that she's done being a detective and wants to strive for something grander — being queen of the rabbits. Meanwhile, Madeline's still struggling with her family. She wants to save up for college but her parents keep spending her money!
Remarkably the solution to both of these problems is a cruise to the UK. More remarkably, the two parties end up on the same ship, though in two very different classes. Cruising brings out the worst in some and that certainly holds true for Mrs. Bunny and Madeline's mother.
There are some hilarious moments both on the ship and in England but the biting edge to the humor of the first book isn't present. My two favorite parts are when Madeline's family accidentally gets stuck in the British Museum due to a problem understanding someone's accent, and later the book signing that pits Polly Horvath aka "the translator" against J. K. Rowling aka "Old What's Her Name."
