Comments Wed Wabbit

  • Karina

    Joyously anarchic, wildly inventive and will make you laugh like a demented loon, forget that this is a children's book and just dive in and read it. Imagine if Alice had met the Teletubbies, in a Monty Python show reimagining Chitty Chitty Bang Banggot that? This is a bit like that, but weirder, funnier and with more heart.I love, love, love this.

  • Ruth

    Perfect!Wed Wabbit is perfect in so many ways. It is about a young girl Fidge (short for Iphigenia) whose sister Minnie (short for Minerva) is injured in an accident. Her mum needs to be with Minnie in the hospital, so Fidge has to stay at her aunt and uncle’s house. The problem is that she can’t stand her ‘difficult’ younger cousin, Graham.Minnie, although not physically present for the majority of the time, dominates the story. She insists that Fidge repeatedly must read to her from he [...]

    I have noticed a number of excellent reviews of this book and it was shortlisted for the Costa Children's book award 2017. However the pupils in my school library (aged 11-12) often returned it unfinished and struggled to understand what was going on. I think it is a great book but the humour is aimed at adults and is not on a child's level. I sometimes think that reviewers, publishers etc. often forget that the success of a book particularly if it is aimed at children should not be based on our [...]

    This is MY kind of whimsy. That is, this is a story pushing back on traditional whimsy in a witty and wry way that is still ultimately a journey story for a couple of kids. (The sort of whimsy that made Dorothy Parker " fwowed up" in her famous review of Pooh.) I'm eager to read it aloud as I sense it would go really well. Will update this review once I do.

    I'd give this book ten stars if I could - I've read so many great books this year, but I think this has got to be my favourite. Slightly surreal, extremely funny, but also has poignancy and heart. Lissa Evans is a very clever writer - there are so many little details that delight. I love the king who can't be bothered to speak in rhyme, Eleanor Elephant's business cards, the daring (but loud) Greens, the ever-hopeful Pinks just wonderful!

  • Sally

    A brilliant and entertaining fantasy! Elements of Alice, Phantom Tollbooth, Wizard of Oz and The Secret Garden but totally original. Had been anxiously awaiting a new Stuart book but this will do nicely. Enough humour to soften the messages, which include finding the courage to face your fears, thinking about the worth in many different types of people, and working together for a better world. I found the dulling effects of the creeping whiteness especially funny (a desire to check your insuranc [...]

  • Jim From YAYeahYeah

    Definitely the strangest, absolutely the most imaginative, and almost certainly one of the very best children's books of recent years. The story of Fidge and Graham's desperate attempt to escape the tywanny of Wed Wabbit is simultaneously hilarious and moving, with great character arcs for both of them. An amazing set of supporting characters adds to the fun, while Lissa Evans's world-building is A+. Utterly spectacular, an absolute must-read.

  • Alicja Górska

    krytyk/literatura/rece"Książka Lissy Evans dotyka pewnych trudnych tematów, jak radzenie sobie ze śmiercią i strachem, lecz robi to bardzo subtelnie. Pisarka prezentuje różne oblicza obaw oraz poprzez działania fantastycznych, lecz wyraźnie bardziej dojrzałych niż protagoniści, postaci podsuwa sposoby radzenia sobie z nimi. „Dorośli” bohaterowie Evans, jak Doktor Marchewka albo personalna trenerka Słonica Sonia, nie zmuszają Funi czy jej kuzyna Grahama (zmagającego się z lic [...]

    I cannot believe how great this book was. I was expectingI don't know, a humorous missing toy story and I'm still kind of in awe over where this book went, how it handled it, and how much I had no idea of what was coming next. It's so freaking cool. It's like Judy Blume (of Superfudge days) wrote a version of Wizard of Oz, as seen through the eyes of a 4 year old. I found myself actually snort laughing aloud while I read this. It has a quest, insane characters, a sense of urgencyd can I just men [...]

    Refreshingly different, lovely melding of a child's imagination and a storybook adventureFidge is sick of her sister's favourite toy, Wed Wabbit, her sister's obsessions with her favourite characters. Her guilt is extreme, however, when Minnie ends up in hospital after an accident that she feels is her fault. Sent to her cousin's house, Fidge finds Graham there, hypochondriac, indulged, paranoid, helpless, and somehow they end up tumbling into a magical world of Minnie's imagination, after takin [...]

    When Fidge’s younger sister, Minnie, is hospitalised after an accident, she is packed off to her cousin’s house with little more than a bag of Minnie’s belongings. After a storm hits, Fidge and Graham wake to find themselves inside the world of the Wimbley Woos, characters from one of Minnie’s favourite books. Wimbley Land is ruled by Minnie’s favourite toy, Red Rabbit - pronounced Wed Wabbit due to Minnie’s inability to pronounce her R’s. What follows is an adventure of silliness, [...]

    “It was such an ordinary evening, but every detail of it would matter; every detail would become vital.” Ok so I was hooked from the first sentence. This might technically be a Children’s book, but that was soon forgotten as I became immersed in the story…Not only is this book covered by a lovely illustrated dust jacket, the hardcover itself is a beautiful purple and looks amazing with or without a cover! The book opens with a beautifully illustrated map which was interesting to pore ove [...]

  • Dantanian

    A page turnerI kept turning em so could finish the darn thing. Nowhere near as good as it sounds. It has some ok ideas which mostly seem pinched from a host of things, and comes across as a sort of self help book for kids. Funny in places but only where it channels Monty python. Claimed as anarchic and surreal but doesn't really touch the sides. Many children I'm sure will love it, and that's the point, but there are so many more imaginative and fun books out there. This is overlong and ultimate [...]

  • Michelle

    I really enjoyed this humorous book about a girl, Fidge, who ends up in a world occupied by Wimbley Woos, characters from her four-year-old sister's favourite book. Along with her obnoxious cousin Graham, a plastic carrot on wheels, and a purple cloth elephant, Fidge must solve a series of cryptic clues in order to get back home again. If it sounds a bit crazy that's because it isbut it's also very funny.

  • Evelyn Romp

    ik snap niet waarom hier raving reviews over geschreven worden. Dit is één van de weinige keren dat ik het hele boek door dacht: wat een raar verhaal. Makkelijk bedacht, de vaart klopt voor geen meter, de humor is het voor mij net niet. Om te verkopen is dit boek al helemaal onmogelijk, want het is een boek over een prentenboek bedoeld voor elfjarigen. De olifant Olla zorgde ervoor dat het niet 1* werd, want die vond ik erg leuk verzonnen, inclusief haar talent voor omdenken.

  • Alex English

    Astonishingly good. It's a kind of Alice in Wonderland meets the Teletubbies. Heartwarming and funny; brilliantly written middle-grade perfection.

  • Amelia Rockliff

    Bolinda audiobook.

  • Weasel

    It's a good read, weird, and rather surreal. The characters are interesting (all of them). I didn't find it as funny as the reviewers on the cover.

  • Lisa

    Very daft, but hugely enjoyable!

  • Kate

    I loved this - so much fun.Great imagination, a good adventure and loads of heart.

  • Kim

    Loved this. What a wild ride of a story. Gave me weird dreams!

  • Lindsay

    Lots of fun, really enjoyed it, very nicely done.

  • Squeakerkelly

    Mad, crazy, funny read.

  • skippity_doo

    Hugely entertaining, largely tongue-in-cheek adventure with a surprising amount of heart.

  • Meggie

    Funny book, imaginative plot. It's not YOU, Lisa. It's ME.

  • Tracey

    A fun and charming books that tells a sweet, gentle lesson.

  • Rakie Keig

    a whole bunch of chaotic fun

  • BiblioPhil

    Delightful alternative world-come-psychodrama in the spirit of Alice and Oz. More wit and invention per page than most books for adults. I only hope it finds a child readership as well as that of admiring grown-ups.
