You can’t bring a rabbit camping. That’s what eleven-year-old Drew Montgomery’s grandparents say when his annoying little sister wants to bring their pet rabbit, Tiny, along on the trip. And Drew agrees. It's bad enough that he will miss the release of the coolest video game of the year while he's stuck in a cramped travel trailer for a week with his grandparents and sister. But Tiny is certain to cause trouble. Plus there are bears and eagles in the woods. And what if Tiny gets lost?
But Libby smuggles the rabbit into the trailer anyway. Now Drew’s got to keep Tiny out of trouble. And that’s not easy to do with Libby always letting him out of the cage and a pair of rabbit-hating bullies ready to let their dog chomp him if he gets too close.
Top it off with never-ending rain, bloodthirsty mosquitos, a broken toilet, stinky outhouses, angry squirrels, terrible food, and an eye-gougingly boring “schedule of activities.” Drew is about ready to take the rabbit and hitchhike home before disaster really strikes.

In The Rabbit Ate My Homework, we meet Drew, Libby and their parents. This is the book that introduces us to Tiny, their rabbit, a Flemish Giant. In this second book in the series their adventures continue as quick and humorous as in the first. Drew and Libby's parents are heading off to Hawaii so their mom can attend a conference. They are going to spend the week camping with their grandparents, Nana and Papa. Drew is not crazy about theis idea as the new video game he has been waiting for is going to be released. Libby does not want tro leave Tiny at home alone, so she sneaks him into the camper to accompany them on their trip. gThe fun and laughs start right away when she keeps asking Papa to stop so she can use the bathroom. Once they realize that Tiny is aboard, it is too late to turn around so he is now/ part of the trip. Of course Nana and Papa do not want Tiny to run loose in the camper so they buy a cage, that Tiny hates. Lots of situations occur at the campground involving a dog, some mean boys, Nana and Papa's friends and Tiny's skills with opening cages. There are some more rabbits and some new friends. Despite the embarrassing situations, the messy ones and the wild chases, the camping trip is deemed a success by both Drew and Libby. Th only thing I did not like about this story was that Libby defies her parents by sneaking Tiny into the camper and then blackmails Drew into helping her "rescue" some rabbits that did not belong to them and even though there was a minor consequence, it may give children the wrong idea. Definitely a discussion about this if it is a read aloud would be beneficial. This is a great early chapter book for readers in late primary, early junior grades. It would be a good addition to classroom, school, family and public libraries. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
