Wed wabbit by Lissa Evans

33811994A hugely funny ‘down the rabbit hole’ adventure from the author of internationally bestselling ‘Small Change for Stuart’, which was shortlisted for both the Carnegie Medal and Costa Award.

You’re called Fidge and you’re nearly eleven. You’ve been hurled into a strange world. You have three companions: two are unbelievably weird and the third is your awful cousin Graham. You have to solve a series of nearly impossible clues. You need to deal with a cruel dictator and three thousand Wimbley Woos (yes, you read that sentence correctly). And the whole situation – the whole, entire thing – is your fault.

Wed Wabbit is an adventure story about friendship, danger and the terror of never being able to get back home again. And it’s funny. It’s seriously funny.

Review: I have a little purple pedal bin – I’m seriously expecting it to telling me prophecies in some fantastical theatre production now. I don’t think it will. Well… who knows?

Wed Wabbit is fun and bizarre and well Wimbley Woo. It makes sense (if you can call it sense) while you’re reading it but I can’t explain the book. Taking the wonderful weirdness of the adventure Fidge and Graham end up in out of the equation, you have a whole lot of character growth.

It’s a story with learning, love, family, friendship, finding strength in yourself and others. And about working together – pretty much everything and the kitchen sink. But the great thing is that it’s all wrapped in the adventure that Fidge is on.

The characters are brilliant. Ella was my personal favourite and I do hope somewhere in my stuffed toy collection there is an Ella-type hidden.

For something definitely different, full of colour, magic and heart; I think Wed Wabbit is the book.

Recommend it?

Absolutely
