The Rabbit Ate My Homework by Rachel Elizabeth Cole @rachel_e_cole #Kids
Being a person who is owned by house pet rabbits I am always on the lookout for authors that also are owned by pet house bunnies. I came across Rachel Elizabeth Cole. Granted at the time I only thought she wrote children’s books. Children’s books where a rabbit is the center of attention. If you know anything about rabbits then you know rabbits can change their opinion of a person very quickly. They may love you one minute while nibbling on a banana treat and the next start the Bunny 500 to get away from you when the treat is gone.
I have not read this series because I am not much into children’s book. But I wanted to share this wonderful series with those readers I am sure some have children looking for something new to read. This author’s books will be featured in the following days ending with Ms. Cole’s adult novels. Stay tuned to see what comes after The Rabbit Ate My Homework.
Eleven year-old Drew Montgomery has not, does not, and will not ever want a stupid old rabbit. All they do is sit in their cages, eat carrots, and poop. Then his annoying little sister blackmails him into hiding a bunny in his closet. She knows what really happened to his “stolen” bike and she’s threatening to tell. Now Drew’s in a real jam. If his “No pets!” parents find the rabbit or, worse, his sister blabs the truth, he’ll be grounded till grade seven for sure.
And if that’s not enough trouble, two girls at school drag him into a prank war that goes from bad to worse–and it’s all the rabbit’s fault. Plus, the weirdest girl in his class wants to be his science partner. If she tells him she wants to be his girlfriend, he just knows he’s gonna die.
Drew must find a way to outwit the mean girls, wiggle out of the blackmail deal, and get rid of the rabbit before it destroys his bedroom and his life.

About the author:
Rachel Elizabeth Cole writes a mix of genres, from heartfelt to humourous–but her favourite will always be middle grade fiction. Her short stories have appeared in literary magazines both online and in print, including Cahoots, Literary Mama, and Flashquake.
When she’s not writing, Rachel works as a graphic designer specializing in book covers. She enjoys refurbishing old furniture rescued from thrift shops and garage sales, puttering in the garden despite her lack of green thumbs, carving down the local mountains on her snowboard, or shouting at the TV during Hockey Night in Canada. Her favourite season is autumn, she prefers tea to coffee, and wishes every morning began at ten a.m.
Born on Vancouver Island, she’s had a life-long love affair with its rugged coasts and windswept beaches. Many of her stories are set there. She hopes to return to ‘the Island’ one day, but for now she lives just outside Vancouver, British Columbia, with her husband, their two sons, and two very spoiled house rabbits.
