Review: Attack of the Fluffy Bunnies by Andrea Beaty

When Joules and Kevin Rockman’s parents drop them off at Camp Whatsitooya on their way to an International Spamathon, the twins expect a summer of marshmallows, campfires, and canoe trips. What they do not expect is to defend the earth from an invasion of sugar-addicted, murderous, seven-foot-tall rabbits from another galaxy. Happily, the Rockman twins, veteran watchers of the Late, Late, Late Creepy Show for Insomniacs, are unusually well-prepared for dealing with monstrous beings from outer space. If only their fellow campers were so lucky.

Received from the publisher for review.

This one gets three stars. It was a cute, fun, amusing, nice little book with a unique story. It was incredibly refreshing that it didn't try to impart some sort of deep message – it was just fun. The illustrations by Dan Santat were quite well done and did add to the text nicely. The Fluffs were nicely sinister. This is certainly recommended and kids of both sexes should certainly enjoy it.

★★☆☆ = Liked It

As soon as my book buying ban is over in two months I'm going to the store and picking this one up for Aidan or myself if he doesn't like it. I'm in love with the cover, thanks for the review.

I just love the names of things in the summary: camp whatsitooya? Spamathon? Hilarious!
