Book Jacket Summary
When Emily Vole inherits an abandoned shop, she discovers a magical world she never knew existed. And a fairy-hating witch, a mischievous set of golden keys, and a train full of brightly colored bunnies are just a few of the surprises that come with it.

With the help of a talking cat called Fidget and a grumpy fairy detective called Buster, it is up to Emily to save the fairies and get to the bottom of Operation Bunny.

My Thoughts
 Daisy and Ronald Dashwood adopt a little girl that has been left in a hat box at a train station. However, Emily is not what they expected when they meant to have a child and slapping a blond wig on her will only hide a small difference. Things change when the triplets arrive and Emily is reduce to a kitchen drudge but she is also able to make friends with Miss String next door. This opens a whole new world for Emily and is found to be the Keeper of the Keys.
This is a wonderful book that takes people being turned into pink bunnies and evil witches that want to kill all the fairies in stride. Emily hardly has time to think while running away with a giant talking cat and trying to find a magic shop on legs. It is fast pace and I really like the way Gardner has a wink and a nod with each over the top thing that happens.
I would definitely pick this one up for a preteen and have fun reading it myself afterward. Cannot wait for the next in the series.
