Rabbit Cake
Rabbit Cake | Annie Hartnett
Twelve-year-old Elvis Babbitt has a head for the facts: she knows science proves yellow is the happiest color, she knows a healthy male giraffe weighs about 3,000 pounds, and she knows that the naked mole rat is the longest living rodent. She knows she should plan to grieve her mother, who has recently drowned while sleepwalking, for exactly eighteen months. But there are things Elvis doesn t yet know like how to keep her sister Lizzie from poisoning herself while sleep-eating or why her father has started wearing her mother's silk bathrobe around the house. Elvis investigates the strange circumstances of her mother's death and finds comfort, if not answers, in the people (and animals) of Freedom, Alabama. As hilarious a storyteller as she is heartbreakingly honest, Elvis is a truly original voice in this exploration of grief, family, and the endurance of humor after loss."

New month, new opportunity to speak at a book talk... I‘m always a bit sad that more library staff don‘t want to participate (public speaking can be scary but also very rewarding - sometimes at the same time) and yesterday there was only two speakers - but still a good session I thought.

These are the ones I spoke on. Have you read any or maybe plan to?

A moving portrait of grief - the Babbitt family is floundering after the drowning death of their mother. It‘s told from Elvis‘ perspective & as she‘s only 10 at the start - there is much she doesn‘t understand & with an older sister with anger issues and an escalating sleep walking problem and a Dad who has taken to wearing his wife‘s bathroom around the house - the answers are slow in coming but they do come, as much as they do with sudden loss.

Not bad but I found parts to be unrealistic. It is a YA novel about a father and his two daughters as they cope in the aftermath of the mothers death.

I enjoyed this book narrated by Elvis, a young girl, as she attempts to come to terms with her mother‘s death. Elvis‘s voice is precocious, yet not annoying, and the story is scattered with intriguing factoids about animals, sleepwalking, and the Guinness Book of World Records. While some of the quirky references occasionally strained credibility, I learned you can, indeed, purchase coyote urine on Amazon!

arubabookwoman @collegecatlady My trip to NYC to visit new grandchild put me a little behind in finishing this since I was afraid I would lose it if I traveled with it. It will be on its way back to you tomorrow. Great choice for #lmpbc. 13mo

It‘s also my first #readwhatyouown, after taking inspiration from @Cinfhen @valeriegeary and not ordering any more library books for the next little while 😳

I am fascinated by sleepwalking... The thought that someone can be in a #deepsleep and still eat, drive a car, and in this case, walk into a deep lake to die, terrifies me 😱 10 year old Elvis Babbitt is left to deal with the sleepwalking death of her mother while also adjusting to her mourning father and sleepeating sister. I bailed on the audio version but gave it a second chance in print and my opinion did improve slightly 🙃
#septemberdanes

Skyrimir I‘ve done a little sleepwalking through the years, usually if I‘m stressed. Some small, like just going to a different room and sleeping or eating something. Once I cooked (and mega burned) some ramen. That was scary! My house was full of smoke! 14mo

zsuzsanna_reads I used to sleepwalk and do things in my sleep, but haven't in a long time. At some point it got so bad and I was so afraid of having an accident, I would hide the key to my bedroom in a different place every night and would write the hiding place on a post it note. If I left the key in the same place every night, I would just fetch it in my sleep and let myself out. 🤣🤣 14mo

What a sweet, funny, poignant story Annie Hartnett has crafted! Told from the perspective of 10/11-year-old Elvis, it‘s never too precious or mature. This was a straightforward story, an easy like Sunday morning read and I absolutely recommend it as a bittersweet palate cleanser between tough reads. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼1/2

Eleven year old Elvis is trying to process the death of her mom. Was it a sleepwalking accident like everyone thinks? Her older sister sleepwalks too, and Elvis and her dad are worried about her new sleep habits and behavior problems.

This is adorable and heart wrenching. It‘s a great book for animal lovers, as long as you can deal with some animal deaths. I loved it, and already know I‘ll be gifting it to some loved ones.

Definite Pick!
