References to fairy tales add depth to the story and make a clever backdrop to this series kickoff, in which a Circe-like witch turns people into animals and lures fairies to their doom in a magical lamp.

Synopsis

When Emily Vole inherits an abandoned shop, she discovers a magical world she never knew existed. And a fairy-hating witch, a mischievous set of golden keys, and a train full of brightly colored bunnies are just a few of the surprises that come with it.

With the help of a talking cat called Fidget and a grumpy fairy detective called Buster, it is up to Emily to save the fairies and get to the bottom of Operation Bunny.

Reviewed by KATHERINE RUNDELL on Mar 14 2014

As the first of a series of detective mysteries, “Operation Bunny” has to establish a background for the rest of the books...But readers of Sally Gardner expect wit, pace and heart, and will not be disappointed. The plot is loopy and the conflict never pretends to realism, but the satisfactions and pleasures are very real.
