What a pickle! Marvin is a small pet who falls from the family car, bumps his head, and forgets everything but his name. He can't even remember what kind of animal he is, and the wild animals he encounters are no help, as he "doesn't seem to be from around here". His identity, and how to get back home, are mysteries. While trying to survive in the wild, Marvin joins with a rabbit who is on a journey to solve a mystery of his own, this one about a traumatic incident from his past. The two then gain an unforgettable companion, a feisty, wisecracking raccoon, whose bravery and humor make up for her rudeness. The trio face many dangers and adventures along the way, but none of those prepare them for what they find at their destination. There, the rabbit finds some answers, but Marvin has to face the biggest and most dangerous challenge of his life...one that may lead him to some answers of his own...or not! This book is most appropriate for children between 6 and 12 years old.

I loved this book, and I think third to eighth graders will, too, because it's filled with suspense, action, mystery, scary parts, and humor. It was a very entertaining adventure, and a fast read! Teachers and parents will love it, too, because it's educational(challenging vocabulary, teaches about nature, and a great moral message). Thumbs up!
