At the beginning of the story, two boys named Tim and Foz were doing magic tricks. Tim wants to grow up and become a magician so he spends a lot of time practicing his magic tricks. Tim’s sister Grinny, always tries to ruin Tim’s tricks, but she did help to save Tim’s magic rabbit from a hungry cat one day. One night Tim was about to sneak and see Amaz-O, who is a magician, at the Midnight Mansion.
During the show Amaz-O told Tim “I will make you disappear at the end of the show.” Tim was very excited to learn about how Amaz-O does magic. At the end of the show, Tim was led to a black box. Amaz-O said his magic words “Abra … Cadabra!” and Tim disappeared into the 5th dimension. Tim really ended up in the basement of the mansion. When Tim was in the basement, he found a case and took it home with him without telling Amaz-O. Once Tim got home he took the case to his attic and tried some of Amaz-O’s tricks that he found in the case.
First Tim tried on Amaz-O’s jacket and out of a sleeve a snake came out. Tim was covered with snakes, but later he knew they were fake snakes. Tim invited Foz to help him try out more magic tricks from the case that Tim took from Amaz-O. Tim wanted to figure out how all of Amaz-O’s magic works. Tim then put on Amaz-Os top hat and one dove came out and then another and another. Tim and Foz left the attic and so did Grinny.Once they were outside Grinny ate the carrot, Grinny turned into a rabbit.
Tim knew he had to turn his sister back into a little girl, but didn’t know how. Then, Tim found a paper with directions about the carrot that Grinny ate. When Tim was about to read it, the wind blew it into the stream. Once they caught up to the wet paper the words were washed away. Tim became very worried for his little sister. The boys returned to Amaz-Os with black case to see if Amaz-O could do anything to help. Amaz-O said there was nothing he could do, because the magic will wear off by itself. This is when the boys find out that Amaz-O is also a rabbit who uses a wooden puppet to make people think he is a person. At the end of the storry, Amaz-O tells Tim he can join Amaz-Os magic act and Tim is very excited.
Bad Hare Day is a great for anyone interested in magic or surprise endings. If you have kids in 3rd – 5th grade and want to read a fictional book about magic, this book is for y0u.
