I had never heard of anyone having a rabbit as a house pet until my co-worker Cindy introduced me to her rabbits.  They roamed her apartment, hiding under the couch and nibbling on cords she had forgotten to hide away under the area rug.

Author & Illustrator Clare Turlay Newberry tells the story of her rabbit’s adjustment to her house in her picture book, Marshmallow.  Well, really Oliver, her cat, tells the story.

And Oliver does not like Marshmallow.

But then Marshmallow decides Oliver was his mother, and their relationship was changes.  Amazingly, Oliver embraces his new role as ‘mom’, and cares for Marshmallow from then on.

Recommended for ages 2 – 6.
