Heather and Picket are extraordinary rabbits with ordinary lives until calamitous events overtake them, spilling them into a cauldron of misadventures. They discover that their own story is bound up in the tumult threatening to overwhelm the wider world. Kings fall and kingdoms totter. Tyrants ascend and terrors threaten. Betrayal beckons, and loyalty is a broken road with peril around every bend. Where will Heather and Picket land? How will they make their stand?
The illustrations are very eye-catching. Although there are only a few, they contribute to the imagery and magic of the book.
My favorite characters are Picket and Heather. Picket must overcome his own weaknesses to guard Jupiter’s heir. Unlike heroes in some other stories, Picket isn’t a perfectly admirable hero. Because of this, it is easier to identify with him. Many of us, like him, strive to be strong for those they care about. Heather tries to be cheerful and upbeat in order to help Picket be too. I can understand how those with any younger siblings want to be their best selves for them because I feel that way also about my younger brother.
Read this book!
It’s worth the money.
