Latest picture book released: The Forgotten Rabbit (just in time for Easter!)

This is my fourth illustrated book for The Gryphon Press. This wonderful small publisher calls itself “a voice for the voiceless” in its efforts to educate people about animal welfare issues. The author, Nancy Furstinger, hopes her story will give parents and children pause when tempted to buy an adorable baby Easter bunny. They are so often neglected and discarded after they grow up. For those who truly want to devote themselves to a pet rabbit, this story shows a way.

I learned a lot about rabbits while illustrating this book. I had NO idea that rabbit obstacle courses were all the rage in Great Britain and gaining ground here in the US.  Fortunately I had some modelling help from my young friend and rabbit owner Thea Riley, who makes a guest appearance along with her rabbits in the book!
