Borrowing Bunnies: A Surprising True Tale of Fostering Rabbits

written by Cynthia Lord, illustrated by Hazel Mitchell, photographs by John Bald

This nonfiction photographic picture book is the story of two adorable foster bunnies who find the perfect home— by a Newbery Honor author. From beloved novelist Cynthia Lord comes the heartwarming tale of the author's own journey in fostering two very special bunnies that is perfect for—but not limited to—Easter. Peggotty and Benjamin, two Netherland Dwarf rabbits, were rescued by Cynthia's local animal sanctuary. But before they were ready to be adopted, Cynthia had to help them learn to trust people again and feel safe in a new home. The bunnies' progress—captured by her husband's photography—engaged hundreds of viewers in real time on Cynthia's Facebook page. Now she has adapted the story into a picture book that explores love, responsibility, empathy, and letting go—with a few surprises along the way.
