BC Mambo (Stone Rabbit Series #1) Synopsis

Stone Rabbit is a bored little bunny who lives a humdrum existence in the sleepy town of Happy Glades. But all that changes when he discovers a time portal of doom—right under his bathroom rug! Suddenly, Stone Rabbit finds himself on a Jurassic journey in a prehistoric world, facing off against vicious velociraptors, terrifying T. rexes, and a nefarious Neanderthal bent on world conquest. Will our hero be able to save the past and return to the present—or will he become extinct?BC Mambo is the first book in a full-color series of riotous, rip-roaring graphic novels that chronicles the zany of adventures of a quick-tempered and quick-witted young rabbit.Erik Craddock grew up during the ’80s and ’90s on a steady diet of comics, video games, and pop culture. It was during his time as a student at New York City’s School of Visual Arts that Stone Rabbit was born. He lives in Babylon, New York.Children's LiteratureOur hero, a feckless bunny, is off through a strange hole in his bathroom floor into a sequence of wild cartoon adventures somehow related to a mysterious bottle of barbeque sauce. Back he goes to prehistoric times to meet dinosaurs, mechanical monsters, and a Wizard of Oz-type inventor, all tumbled together into large and small spaces from comic-book style on up. A text-less, double-page scene of stampeding creatures is particularly scary. The text appears only in speech balloons and sound effects. Scenes are loaded with details that encourage closer examination rather than racing through the hyperactive adventures. Our cartoon hero must save the world from power-hungry Neanderthals; his return to the present is abrupt but a relief. This is book 1 of Stone Rabbit. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
