The main character, the country bunny, is female and breaks through the rabbit “glass ceiling.” She is raising 21 kids on her own but still succeeds in her career because, not in spite of the fact, that she’s a mother. (Read it today with a child from age 4 to age 8, Houghton Mifflin, $15 hardcover, $6 paperback.
