Book Excerpt

It was a typical Saturday afternoon. The spring sun was shining brightly into Sunday’s room as she was playing tea party with her stuffed animals. She sat there joyfully pouring make believe tea for her stuffed playmates while her mom was in the kitchen preparing lunch, and her dad was in the living room reading the newspaper.

Everything seemed happy and serene in this quaint little apartment, but before we venture any further into the events of this day, there is one more family member that needs to be introduced.

In a far corner of the living room resides an idle relaxed little bunny. Her fur is softer than the softest pillow that you ever slept on. She is about half the size of a full grown cat, and her ears droop down just over the part of her face that hides that certain look in her eye that tells you that trouble is on its way. But we are about to find that out anyway as rest time is over and she springs to life and jolts out of her play pen. Her name is Patches, and her day is just beginning.
