We have two siblings who complement each other, work well together, and appear to have a supportive, cooperative and understanding relationship. That's a huge, and unusual, plus. Next, we have clueless absent minded scientist parents who, nonetheless, love and support the kid heroes and are in turn respected and liked by the kids. Another huge, and maybe even more unusual, plus.
We have a puckish tongue-in-cheek narrator who is neither too coy nor too saccharine. The narrator's little asides and bits are actually clever and funny. The jokes are not all predictable and there's a lot of sly humor tucked in the narration for the amusement of older readers. I have grown tired of ironic/detached narrators, and their authors, who distance themselves from the material or mock their very readers. Not so here - the narrator/author is having clever word-play fun and the reader is welcome to join the party. Every now and then the writing can get a bit precious, but that's often balanced out by a line with a bit of a vinegary edge, so it's all good.
Finally, and of great importance even if it doesn't figure into the story or plot as such, there is a general air of good humor to the whole exercise. The tone is consistently upbeat and fun. We are talking about an invasion by crazy mind-control alien rabbits for heaven's sake, so we might as well have fun with the story. There is nothing mean or sour in the book; no one is punished or humiliated; there's no weird, uncomfortable or inappropriately serious sub-plot. The tone is consistently one of good-natured goofiness, even when the story is at its most suspenseful. It also doesn't hurt that both kids are smart and neither bullied because of that nor apologetic about it.
The upshot is that if you want an entertaining, well written, sly and archly deadpan story about two siblings trying to prevent the takeover of Earth by giant alien rabbits bent on world domination - well, this is your ticket.
Please note that I picked up a free copy of this book at the 2015 ALA Convention. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
Both books are great fun, easy to read, and fast paced. Perfect for reluctant readers!
