BOOKS: AGES 5 THRU 8
McGreely anxiously awaits his vegetable garden to sprout crisp
yummy produce. Not surprisingly, three neighborhood rabbits are
anticipating sampling the same veggies. Thus begins Mr. McGreely’s
ever extensive and elaborate barricades to thwart their ravenous
plotting. Artwork is humorously rendered in gouache, with acrylic
Impish creatures named Bugbear and Bugaboo - portly little mischief
