I liked this story a lot. The rabbit-eye view of the world was beautifully and lovingly constructed. I loved the stories the bunnies told one another, and how serious their little world was. The ending is not sad: Hazel, the Chief Rabbit, saves his friends and creates a gentle new warren, and years afterward, he goes to bunny heaven with “the rabbit with stars for ears.” It was just the way it should have been.
Writing Lessons Learned: The world was a character in the story. I love that.
