Now Available: A New Bunny Short Story!
Mr. and Mrs. Bunny, formerly renowned detectives (they wore fedoras) and would-be royalty (especially Mrs. Bunny) embark on a new career path: food critics. This requires new disguises (must hide ears) and a new vocabulary ("dairy-like" for milk or "saltiness" for salt will not do, Mrs. Bunny insists). So off they go to take on the daunting task of describing the food at Rabbitville's fanciest restaurant. Readers of the Mr. and Mrs. Bunny books will be delighted to meet their old friends; they may even take notes.Purchase it from Amazon
