Fenway and Hattie and the Evil Bunny Gang: 02/22/17
Fenway and Hattie and the Evil Bunny Gang by Victoria J. Coe is the sequel to Fenway and Hattie. Nicely settled into a new home and a new routine, Fenway thinks everything is perfect. That is until a new menace starts threatening Food Woman's garden — bunnies!
The arrival of the bunny stench begins the unraveling of Fenway's life. He finds himself blamed for the destruction in the garden (even though there are obvious bunny droppings nearby). He then has to share his home and his Hattie with their leader, Thumper.
Like the first book, the entire story is told through Fenway's limited point of view. Fenway's understanding of human speech is limited. His interpretation of events is pure dog — seeing Hattie and her parents as his pack. A pet brought into the home that smells like the territory invaders must also be a threat.
Fortunately there are enough clues to tie up all the lose ends. Things are not what Fenway thinks they are, especially when it comes to the actions of his human family. He is, however, spot on about the invading bunnies and gets to have a heroic moment at the end of the book.
