More Bunny Cotton-Tail

Last spring, we introduced audiences to the little bunny who likes to read in bed by candlelight. He burned his paw and then proceeded to eat the cabbage leaf that his patient Mother Bunny wrapped it in. And so his adventures began. He ran away to a cabbage patch, dodged Bushy Tail the Fox, got soaked because he didn't know how to open his umbrella and saved his friend Susan Rabbit.
This time, Bunny gets sidetracked by a couple of scatterbrained squirrels on his way to school. He meets up with Susan again, as well as Bushy Tail and a wise old owl. He's an eager student, even though he and the teacher, Mr. Grumbles, don't hit it off very well in the beginning. Bunny is excited about learning a piece for the school program.
This story is told with hand, rod and shadow puppets, with original music written by our daughter, Katie.
