Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde
It began with my father not wanting to see the Last Rabbit, and ended up with me being eaten by a carnivorous plant.I love the way this book starts at the end of the story. This sentence really grabs your attention- who is talking? what is the last rabbit? why did the father not want to see it? how did he end up being eaten by a carnivorous plant? what sort of strange world is this anyway?
