It all starts when Drew gets upset because his father won't keep his word and go to a bike ride in the woods with him. Drew decides then to go by himself, even he knows he is not suppose to go there alone. He jumps with his bike, even he knows he is not suppose to do so. The obvious happens: the bike's suspension fork breaks. Ok. He still can get this better. He can tell what happened, apologize, and promise do not do it again. Well... he doesn't. Drew hides his bike in the woods instead.
When the following day they find a little bunny in a box, Libby his younger sister insists in bring it home. Drew explains that their parents would never, ever receive the pet. But Libby knows where Drew's bike is, and why is there, and she threatens him with telling their parents about it if he doesn't help her to hide the bunny. That's how Tiny ends hidden in Drew's closet, peeing everywhere and eating everything he can find. This snow ball will only get bigger until finally ends in a huge avalanche.
This story was totally engaging. The characters are so likable. I loved the author's humor. The pace of the story was perfect. I was glad when finally all this mess ended, and the way it was solved. The message was clearly delivered without being discursive at all. I'm really looking forward to read the next book in he series, The rabbit ate my flip flops.
