 Born To Be Wild (PLB $13.89; $3.95 paper; Mar. 31, 1997; 60 pp.; PLB 0-06-027338-0; paper 0-06-442033-7): In the third installment of The Weebie Zone series (Gerbilitis, 1996, not reviewed, etc.), Garth still has the ability--thanks to a bite from his gerbil, Weebie--to communicate with animals. Garth and his family are on vacation in Maine, where he helps a tame rabbit that has run away from its overly affectionate owner. Spinner and Weiss don't talk down to the audience, and they include plenty of comic touches in their enjoyable tale. (Fiction. 7-9)
