Children Ages 8+ • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Polly Horvath lives up to her gift for creating quirky stories as she successfully merges unique human and animal characters in a story loaded with wit. The human character, Madeline, seeks normalcy on a small Canadian island, where she lives with her hippie parents. She must give that up when her parents are kidnapped by TV-watching foxes and she teams up with Mr. and Mrs. Bunny, newly minted detectives, to find them. Listeners know they’re in for something special when Horvath’s reading begins in rapid “Rabbitese” and she must be reminded that her audience is human. Her somewhat-squeaky narration moves at a fast clip as Horvath straddles worlds, immerses listeners in adventures, and embeds this silly romp with a tone that is just right for her playful satire of pretense.
