It's Logan's tenth birthday; a day he will surely celebrate with the gift of something he's wanted for three years: a dog. Unfortunately, fate and his elders deem otherwise, and instead of a dog, he gets something very different: a dwarf rabbit. His disappointment is crushing, because all his expectations of having a dog so it can serve as both playmate and protector are crushed by the presence of a caged, "regifted" bunny who can be neither.
A good amount of rabbit information, from behavior to care, comes with this fun story of how the little bunny grows on Logan despite his initial efforts to reject it. And as time goes on and his brother and the kids at school are less interested in teasing him over his new pet, Logan comes to find Rubiks is an unexpected plus in his life; especially when a mystery evolves that can only be solved with the bunny's help. It turns out Rubiks has some unexpected talents in this direction, and as Logan becomes involved in something beyond his abilities to solve, it's up to Rubiks to pull them into the kind of adventure he never thought he could experience with a rabbit.
Unique, fun, and refreshingly realistic in its portrait of family and friendships, the first book of Rubiks: The Rabbit Mysteries is a fun leisure read highly recommended for any advanced elementary to middle grader reader who enjoys pets, mysteries, and a dose of fantasy added into the mix.
