Dear Librarians,

I hope this MG animal story feels like a warm hug — yet takes your breath away, too! In what Gregory Maguire calls a "richly told story" that is "both swift and moving," our rabbit hero must decide whether to defy her family’s beliefs and organize a daring rescue of creatures in need. With action-packed illustrations by Caldecott Medalist Doug Salati, this timeless novel celebrates courage, compassion, and the unexpected power of storytelling. Enjoy!
