WHO P-P-P-PLUGGED ROGER RABBIT? by Gary K. Wolf
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Aug. 12, 1991

"The perfect bookstore browse, though most readers will have had their fill before reaching the register."
Wolf's sequel to Who Censured Roger Rabbit?, the basis for the wildly successful film, presents private eye Eddie Valiant with some conflicting jobs: Roger Rabbit wants him to find out whether Clark Gable's beaten him out for the lead in Gone With the Wind—as well as out of wife Jessica's affections; David Selznick wants him to investigate the theft of a mysterious box from his office (the suspects are the three actors auditioning for Rhett Butler: Gable, Baby Herman, and Roger); Gable wants Eddie to find out who's been planting tabloid stories that say he's gay; and the murder of shadowy toon Kirk Enigman with Eddie's own gun sparks a search for the secret formula for Toon Tonic, which turns people into animated Toons (and vice versa).

OVER THE JOSHUA SLOPE by Lyman Hafen
CHILDREN'S
Released: April 1, 1994
