The Remarkable Rescue at Milkweed Meadow

Coming May 16, 2023. Pre-order today!

By: Elaine Dimopoulos / Illustrated by: Doug Salati

Helping a creature is a good reason to take a risk.

“With the confidence of a maestro, Elaine Dimopoulos breathes vigor and beauty into a tale of a brave and thoughtful young rabbit . . . A chorus of woodland cheer for such a remarkable rescue." —Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked and Cress Watercress.

Butternut lives in the warrens of Milkweed Meadow with her nine rabbit brothers and sisters. Together, they practice strategies for survival and tell stories. With disastrous scenarios blooming in her mind, Butternut embraces the lesson of her families’ stories: stick to your own rabbit-kind. But after befriending an incorrigible robin and a wounded deer, Butternut begins to question what she has been taught. 

When the three friends discover a litter of abandoned coyote pups, Butternut must decide whether she can help these pups, rally her friends and family, and be as brave as the heroes in the stories she tells.

Beautiful and arresting black-and-white illustrations bring the animals to life in this heartwarming story about friendship, community, and doing what is right.
