Tara Sands deftly conveys each interaction, whether warm and charming or frightening, with the many animals in this delightful tale. Because rabbit Tumkit is the runt of the litter, he must work hard to survive. His sweet baby voice immediately wins listeners. Sands zestfully portrays the sights, smells, and sounds as Tumkit emerges from his burrow. When he must fend for himself and nearly starves, his fear is evident. Soon Tumkit is rescued by Sands's best creation, Vella, a bossy but wise mockingbird who has a magic berry that will save him. As he thrives, Tumkit meets a croaky frog, a raspy grizzly bear, and a kind deer. The story demonstrates to young listeners that size is no indication of one's potential.
