Alice’s Farm: A Rabbit’s Tale
The farm across the meadow has been empty for years. The rabbits in the meadow, including Alice, are happy. Carl Harvey is also content; he lives in the city, which is a good place for a boy to grow up. But Carl’s parents have bigger dreams.
Now the Harveys have moved to the old farm, to Carl and the rabbits’ shock. You would think that neither would cross paths since rabbits and farmers don’t get along well. But Alice is not like most rabbits. When both meadow and farm are threatened, she must go against her cottontail nature and work with farmers and foxes, in a hare-brained scheme that will make rabbit history!
What a book! I love the charming characters and elegant writing. I liked that the rabbits and the baby, Marie, can understand each other, while the grownups are clueless. Talk about baby power! It’s cool that the book alternates between humans and animals, and it’s a satisfying read for young and old. This novel is also funny, thanks to the dog and Carl. The ending is a bit sad, but the bittersweet note finishes the book perfectly.
Maryrose Wood brings her unique writing style and love of animals to this well-crafted story of farms, friends, and a lot of dehydrated fruit.
