Emmaline and the Bunny

If you liked Barbara Kingsolver’s Prodigal Summer,  then Katherine Hannigan’s Emmaline and the Bunny is for your kids.  Emmaline doesn’t fit into Neatasapin, the concrete suburban world that her family lives.  When she hears about Untidy, she sneaks out to visit, befriends a notched-eared bunny and learns what she must do to have bunnies in her yard.  Convincing her parents and the mayor, Orson Oliphant, transforms the entire town.

Read up on wild bunnies and pet bunnies, and talk about the environment.

  1. Thanks for liking this post!

  2. OMG, I love Barbara Kingsolver (although Prodigal Summer is not my favourite of hers). And I’d never fit into Neatasapin. I’ll have to check this out!
