The story-line in Wed Wabbit is very childish, which did put me off it at first. Its structure is one that is seen in many books, for young children especially. The protagonist is a young girl named Fidge, whose sister gets hit by a car after trying to retrieve a toy that went onto the road. Fidge gets transported to the colourful Land of the Wimbley Woos, which has been taken over by a tyrannical leader, with her cousin, Graham, and his 'therapy carrot'. They are given a prophecy by the purple Wimbley Woos, which is meant to help them leave the Land of the Wimbley Woos. Minnie recovers miraculously fast and wants Wed Wabbit, so Fidge and Co need to leave quickly.
The story is very fast-paced. Something is always happening that is relevant to the story, which helps the plot move along. The beginning of the book is very silly and, in my opinion, quite painful to read. Once the protagonists get the gist of what's happening, and how they can resolve it, the story does start to gradually get better. The last quarter or so of the book is more serious, although it does still give off a childish feeling.
I recommend this book for 9-11 year olds.
