The first thing that attracted me to buy this book was that it was about rabbits. Rabbits being one of my favourite animals. I started to read this book and I could see right from the beginning that I was going to enjoy this book. Funnily enough I did!
This book is about Mandy who helps out at her parents work place Animal Ark. Animal Ark is a vet surgery that cares for injured and abandoned animals, wild or domestic.
Mandy's new friend John is absolutely bonkers about rabbits and he'd do anything for one. He really has got his heart set on buying two baby rabbits in a petshop he visits with Mandy and James.
John pays for the two rabbits which he names Button and Barney, but first he's got to ask his dad. He asks the shop keeper to reserve the rabbits and plans on coming back the next day.
John's dad says that he can have the rabbits, and together, Mandy, James and John go to the petshop to take his two rabbits home.
There's one problem though, Button and Barney are gone. They're not in the petshop window or anywhere. John asks the assistant about the whereabouts of his two rabbits and he says that he's sold them.
As you can imagine, John is heart broken, he really had his heart set on looking after those two rabbits.
Mandy and James together search for the owner of Button and Barney.
This story is very heartwarming about the love one boy has for two baby rabbits. It is also an adventure story where Mandy and James have to become detectives in order to get Button and Barney back.
This book is another hit for Lucy Daniels (the author) and this is why I have rated it five stars.
