Escape from Hat / Adam Kline and Brian Taylor.

Escape from Hat /  Adam Kline and Brian Taylor.
We all have good luck and bad, courtesy of our very own lucky rabbits and black cats. Most people never even notice them. Cecil Bean had certainly never noticed his villainous cat, Millikin, or his devoted rabbit, Leek. At least not until Millikin hatched a deliciously evil plan to have Leek vanish within a magician's hat, leaving Cecil with no good luck at all. Thrown into a shadowy, perilous world, Leek will stop at nothing to return to his boy--even though no rabbit has ever escaped the land of Hat before. To do so, Leek must sail across the Great Ink, travel beyond the Jungle Prime Evil, brave the Grottos of Ill Repute, and breach the very seat of all bad luck--the dark fortress of the black cats itself. Meanwhile, as cat and rabbit battle for control of his fate, Cecil comes to realize that sometimes in life, with your back against the wall and all odds stacked against you, the only solution is to roll up your sleeves and make your own luck, all by yourself, from scratch. -- publisher description from jacket.

Not an alphabet book : the case of the missing cake / Eoin McLaughlin ; illustrated by Marc Boutavant.
There has been a terrible crime, Bear tells us. Someone has STOLEN a delicious chocolate cake! Bear sets off to find the culprit, questioning characters and compiling clues from A to Z. Among the suspects: a gingerbread man (G) with a bite out of his head, a kite (K) that may be above the law, and an octopus (O) with grabby tentacles. But -- hold on -- are those crumbs on Bear's page? Is that frosting on his face? Looks like our narrator is a little unreliable! And it appears our culprit might be the one that Bear wants readers to suspect the least of all. . . . Author Eoin McLaughlin's sly, cheeky humor takes the alphabet book to inventive new heights, while best-selling illustrator Marc Boutavant's smart and striking graphic-style art matches the irreverent tone. Young ABC learners and older fans of funny stories will laugh out loud at Bear's uproarious investigation and his anything-but-usual suspects.
