Imagine being in charge of a jackalope with razor-sharp antlers and being pursued by government agents. Professor Twitchett abandons his animal science experiment in Jeremy’s room and disappears. Where can he hide “Jack”? Not the clothes hamper. Jack shreds clothes, including Jeremy’s underwear. What do you feed a killer bunny? Well, Jack loves whiskey, so Jeremy robs minibars to keep him placated. Government spies follow Jeremy and his annoying accomplice, Agatha, capture them, and threaten them with a vomit-inducing flashlight. The suspense, action, humor and fun will appeal to readers who love adventure. The author Emily Ecton is associate producer for the popular National Public Radio program, Wait, Wait . . .
