Thats what the new boy in town, Rex Norton-Norton, aka Rex Zero, wonders as he rides his bike through Ottawas streets. Is it spies? Kidnappers? Or is it because of the shadowy creature some say is stalking Adams Park? One thing is certain in this summer of 1962 as the Cold War heats up: nothing is quite what it seems. Whats a boy to do? If his name is Rex Zero and he has a bike he calls Diablo, five wild and funny siblings, an alpha dog named Kincho, a basement bomb shelter built of old Punch magazines, and a mind that turns everything inside out, hes bound to come up with an amazing idea.With its mystery, adventure, laugh-out-loud scenes of family chaos, and underlying message of hope, this wonderfully original novel explores the impact of doomsday on the imagination of one smart and funny twelve-year-old boy. And more Rex Zero adventures are promised!Rex Zero and the End of the World is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Childrens Book of the Year.
