Philip Russell Jenkins and his sister, Kooch, have a big problem. The crotchety farmer next door, Old Man Hoover, has threatened to shoot their beloved dog, Frank, dead on the spot if he ever catches him near his prize rabbit. One stormy night, Frank brings that rabbit home . . . between his teeth. Philip and Kooch must think up a scheme, and think it up fast, in order to save Frank from Old Man Hoover’s wrath.
With a voice reminiscent of Scout’s in To Kill a Mockingbird, Pam Conrad’s retelling of this funny campfire favorite is masterful. Magnificent artwork by Mark English evokes steamy summer days gone by.
