About the book

Snow is coming, coming soon, so Rabbit needs to find food fast. Just in time, a turnip turns up, and a second one, too. Who in the woods wouldn't want to tuck away an extra turnip for the long winter? Not Rabbit. He chooses a different path--and starts a wave of generosity that spreads among all his forest friends.


Admired picture-book team George Shannon and Laura Dronzek have created a heartwarming tale about the true meaning of friendship.


Includes an author's note and a chart that translates the Chinese calligraphy in the book.
