The Book

Rabbit's Wit is a creative retelling of Rumi's Lion and the Beast story. Stories that inspire kids to think differently and overcome challenges are a treasure. Rabbit's Wit tells the story of a beast that invades a village and steals their harvest. A young rabbit devises a clever plan to save his village and succeeds. Parents beware -- the beast is scary, but life can be scary at times. Overcoming the scary bits makes us stronger and more confident.

I genuinely hope you enjoy the story. If you do, please tell your friends and leave a positive review. Since I don't have a big budget to promote Rabbit's Wit, I could use your help. Of course, if you are not thrilled by the story, perhaps you will like the next one, Bird's Wisdom, also based on a Rumi tale.
