Introducing Harriet Houdini, a small bunny with attitude!

Never destined to be a boring bunny, Harriet Houdini is just settling into life with her new family, the Wilsons, when she is spotted by the producer of hit TV show Superpets and begins her showbiz career.

From daring back-flips to thrilling escape attempts, Harriet is a true stunt bunny -  but does she have what it takes to become a Superpet?

The cover is so cool! I love the way that it looks like Harriet is actually jumping out of the book; if you look closely and read the words behind Harriet, you can see that it's an actual page from the book which I think is really clever. Also, it looks like Harriet has chewed her way through the cover, like she's trying to escape, which is funny!

I loved Harriet's thoughts. They were so funny and cute! Harriet is such a clever bunny. The character EE (stands for Evil Edward) is a really mean character, but he gets nicer near the end of the book.

Tamsyn is so good at writing comedy, so I expected this book to be funny and it didn't disappoint! A bunny called Harriet Houdini who can do back-flips?! Genius. The idea for this book is amazing and I have no idea how she came up with it - brilliant!

Any reader, of any age, will love this book. I read this book in one sitting because it was just so funny - it made me laugh out loud in places. I definitely recommend this book if you want a light, short, humourous read and it would be ideal for your little brother or sister! I give this book 5/5, I loved it!
