When Emily Vole inherits an abandoned shop, she discovers a magical world she never knew existed. And a fairy-hating witch, a mischievous set of golden keys, and a train full of brightly colored bunnies are just a few of the surprises that come with it.

With the help of a talking cat called Fidget and a grumpy fairy detective called Buster, it is up to Emily to save the fairies and get to the bottom of Operation Bunny.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One
 
 
Daisy Dashwood and Ronald Dashwood had everything a young couple could dream of: a house in the suburbs, with box hedges shaped like squirrels, two cars in the drive with customized license plates—HER1 and HIS2—a tennis court, a small swimming pool, a gym. They even owned a villa near Malaga in Spain. But the one thing they didn’t have, the one thing neither money nor nature had been able to give them, was a baby.
Their next-door neighbor, Miss String, had suggested kindly that perhaps Daisy should make a wish.

Praise for Operation Bunny

Operation Bunny:

 

"Fans of Roald Dahl or the Clover Twig series may find some new favorite characters here." - BCCB

 

"Wickedly fun."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

 

“If you like mind-boggling adventures filled with brilliant illustrations and strange talking animals, then do not hesitate to pick up this brilliant book.”—The Guardian

 

“This brims with quirky charm reminiscent of Eva Ibbotson, Joan Aiken and early JK Rowling.”—The Times

 

"Roberts’ stylized cartoony illustrations—mostly of cute bunnies—scatter over almost every page, adding a delightful touch to the madcap caper. Emily is a nononsense, brave girl detective, and young readers looking for silly magical adventures will find much to love. Want more? You’re in luck: this is the first title in the Wings & Co. series." - Booklist

"This first brisk, entertaining series entry leaves enough dangling threads to make readers eager for the next." - The Horn Book  

"It should appeal to readers who enjoy whimsy without a lot of stressful conflict. Highlights are the charming Briticisms as well as the merry, slightly off-kilter black-and-white illustrations–especially the depiction of Harpella, who resembles a pointier, more deranged version of Lady Gaga." - School Library Journal
