Staff Reviews

10 year-old Elvis, her older sister, Lizzie, and Dad flounder following the drowning of "Mom." Boomer, the beloved family dog, Ernie, the adopted parrot, Lizzie's risky sleepwalking and Elvis's zoo volunteering add both levity and heaviness to this grieving family. Mom baked rabbit cakes to celebrate just about everything, and Lizzie manically proceeds to bake 1,000 rabbit cakes to make it into the Guinness Book of World Records. Crammed with heart-wrenching and hilarious scenes, this upended family copes with love AND many delicious rabbit cakes!
