Join a twelve-year-old boy's accidental adventure through parallel worlds in this absurdly funny middle grade action-adventure series. The fate of the universe lies in the hands of one boy and one gigantic bunny in Patrick Griffin's Last Breakfast on Earth, the first book of a hilarious and mind-bending new adventure series, by Ned Rust.
When overlooked middle child Patrick Griffin passes out after a chemistry experiment goes bad, he finds himself in a strange parallel world, where everyone has big eyes, tiny ears, and an addiction to devices called "binkies." At first, Patrick thinks it's all a weird dream, but he's about to wake up to a dangerous 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.

"Clever--and utterly bonkers." --Kirkus Reviews
"Part Narnia, part Home Alone. It wouldn't have shocked me to learn the book had been written by some guy named Lemony Vonnegut." --James Patterson, New York Times-bestselling author
"There is plenty of comedy along the way, mostly focused around puns or interplanetary misunderstandings. Under the jokey exterior, though, there's some deep stuff about the way we allow ourselves to be controlled by technology, so the book offers more than just laughs for the perceptive reader." --The Bulletin
"A terrific read, magic really, an adolescent book for adults, an adult book for adolescents, a funny, wise, enthralling romp from fist page to last . . . So much better than Harry Potter." --Peter Quinn, author of Hour of the Cat
"Imaginative." --School Library Journal
