Patrick Griffin's Last Breakfast on Earth

From the Publishers:
When Patrick Griffin passes out after a chemistry experiment gone bad, he wakes up in a strange parallel world, where everyone has huge eyes and tiny ears, and is addicted to smartphones called "binkies." Patrick thinks it's all a weird dream, but he's about to wake up to an adventure beyond his wildest imagination.
Meanwhile, a huge rabbit-like creature named Mr. BunBun is roaming through Patrick's hometown, leaving a trail of chaos behind it. Its mission? To save Earth from imminent doom.
See what happens when the fate of three worlds lies in the hands of one boy and one gigantic bunny in this first book of a hilarious and mind-bending new adventure series.

My Thoughts:

This is a great summer read and is going to be a popular book for middle level readers. It has oddball situations, it has a typical middle child awkward boy left home alone and then alternative world teens who play by different social rules, big rabbits, rebellion, chaos, and Big Brother government types. Parents are as clueless and vague (what's new) and kids are the ones who really see what is going on. It reminds me of the humor in a classic Piers Anthony fantasy or a Narnia world.

Truth be told, I did not get to finish this book before my access was cancelled, but that just means I need to finish it when it comes out in August (Publication date: August 2, 2016).

An early copy made available from Net Galley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
