It ain't easy being small. Little Bunny knows that all too well. But in this magical holiday book by Northeast Kingdom resident David Martin, a young rabbit gets even smaller on Christmas Eve and discovers that small stature results in big perspective. Little readers will look longingly at LB's adventure racing around the Christmas tree in his favorite fire engine ornament. Illustrator Valeri Gorbachev's muted watercolors lend the holiday tale a dreamy, old-fashioned mood. Little Bunny and the Magic Christmas Tree isn't Martin's only book for children. He's also penned Hanukkah Lights and All for Pie, Pie for All. This new story is perfect for any child who has fallen asleep under the Christmas tree, dreaming of a holiday fantasy Martin brings to life.
