Fairy Tales Written By Rabbits
This book was written as a gift to the Big Ears Animal Sanctuary in Tasmania. I was privileged to work with Big Ears during my early years as a vet and found them to be lovely people who genuinely care about animals. In those days I sent them many stray or unwanted animals that we were unable to find homes for, including a piglet, a one eyed guinea pig and a one eyed cat.
Unfortunately, Jacqui Steele, one of the co-founders of the sanctuary, was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer. This terrible news cast a shadow on the future of the sanctuary and the hundreds of animals that reside there. I wanted to be able to do something nice for her, so wrote this book featuring rabbits as the main characters as a gift for her and the sanctuary. As part of that, all author royalties from Fairy Tales Written By Rabbits will be donated to Big Ears Animal Sanctuary.
The book features two rabbits fleeing a bush fire that find themselves in an unfamiliar land. To find their way home they must seek the legendary unicorn and face untold dangers, but not everything here is as it seems.
Featuring illustrations by the talented Michelle Cannon.
