Weerdest Day Ever! (7 Prequels)

Orca Book Publishers | 7 Prequels


Bunny is on a camping trip with his brother and his grandpa. How much trouble can he get into? As it turns out, a lot. For one thing, there are soldiers all over the place. Canada is about to go to war with the United States, and the battle starts tomorrow. Bunny is worried. A hockey rivalry is one thing, but this is serious. And why is everybody so happy? Things get personal when an American soldier steals his brother Spencer's cell phone. Bunny decides to track down the phone himself. Maybe they can get out of there before the war starts. That’s when things get confusing...

In this zany prequel to Ink Me and The Wolf and Me, the hockey-loving, indomitable Bunny goes camping with his brother and his grandpa.

Ink Me

Orca Book Publishers | Seven (the Series)


Bunny (real name Bernard) doesn't understand why his late grandfather wants him to get a tattoo. Actually, Bunny doesn't understand a lot of things, so it's good that his older brother, Spencer, is happy to explain things to him. But this is a task Bunny is supposed to do on his own, and nobody is more surprised than Bunny when, after he gets tattooed, he is befriended by a kid named Jaden and adopted into Jaden's gang. The gang hangs out at a gym, where Bunny learns to fight, but when it finally dawns on him that the gang is involved in some pretty shady—and dangerous—business, Bunny is torn between his loyalty to his new friends and doing what he knows is right.

Bunny's adventures start in Weerdest Day Ever!, part of The Seven Prequels and continue in The Wolf and Me, part of The Seven Sequels.

---

"Readers will be too engrossed in the upshot of Bunny's honesty and incomprehension to realize that Ink Me exposes the vulnerability of perceptions to misinterpretation...A brilliant story, less about gangs and tattoos than about our relationships with others and the roles misunderstanding and perspective play in securing or destroying the integrity of those connections."

---

"Bunny is a likeable, engaging narrator whose storytelling style is captivating both in its naïveté and in its omissions. In its idiosyncratic rendering of the ambiguities of language, the text reveals many moments of unexpected insight and brilliance...This is a surprisingly rich book, despite its casual presentation...It is clever in its execution and wise in its thematic treatment."

---

"[The] adventures are exciting and readers will be anxious to pick up the next book in the series. Great for middle grade boys who want realistic fiction with action and suspense."

---

"An excellent story that entertained me and made me think, with great characters and a plot that moves...[Scrimger] deserves kudos for a stellar job."

---

"An exciting story [with] a lot of hearty laughs at Bunny's misunderstandings and their consequences."

---

"What I loved about this book was that I could never see where it was going. I mean never. Right up until the end. "

---

"[An] enjoyable fable of Toronto gang life recorded in believable, phonetically spelled prose...Most intellectually disabled characters in children's fiction are siblings or pals whose treatment by other characters signals their compassion or otherwise. Bunny's a rare hero—not on anyone's journey but his own."

The Wolf and Me

Orca Book Publishers | The Seven Sequels


Bunny is in trouble. He’s been kidnapped from the skating rink at City Hall in Toronto, and now he’s locked in a cold basement room, still in his parka and skates. Where is he? And why do his kidnappers keep asking questions about his dead grandpa and some weird national anthem? Bunny may not always know what’s going on, but he has an innocent’s ability to get to the heart of things and find out what it’s all about. When he manages to escape, he skates across hockey rinks and down frozen highways, always a few strides ahead of his kidnappers. He gets help along the way from an assortment of characters—some kindly, some crazy, some scary and at least one that will make your jaw drop.

The Wolf and Me is the sequel to both Weerdest Day Ever!, part of The Seven Prequels and Ink Me, part of Seven (The Series).

---

"[Bunny] bumbles along, and we get so caught up in his absurd adventures, his crazy misunderstandings, that we are compelled to read on and on...If that isn't the mark of a good book, I don't know what is."

---

"This thrill-a-minute series will hook reluctant readers as well as fans of James Bond and Jason Bourne."

---

"Bunny's learning disabilities can make academics challenging, but his unique way of viewing the world might just be the key to his freedom...Bunny's indomitable spirit makes him a likable, one-of-a-kind narrator...Readers will respond to this improbable, deeply sympathetic hero."

---

"This book [is] great fun. Bunny's adventures veer toward the edge of implausible, but his frank and lovable voice made me cheer for him...Like Richard Scrimger's previous novels, this book is playfully and smartly written. Readers who have already explored the original Seven the Series books will welcome another delightful, if improbable, adventure with Bunny...An all-around rollicking read."

---

"Poor Bunny. He's such a great guy but, often through no fault of his own, he gets himself immersed in the most unusual, even dangerous, situations...Like the detention centre, there are many obstacles that impede Bunny's journey. But he always finds a way to turn them into something positive... I'm so glad Richard Scrimger gave him life. He makes life better for all who meet him, fictional characters and readers alike."
