In Book 2 of the Runt Farm series, when mouse friends Cletus and Tooth hear a bunny moaning in the weeds, they rush to help her. Flop-eared and big-footed Beatrice is an excellent fit for the farm. She actually pulls off a rescue of her very own! Finding a soggy squirrel in a tight spot, Beatrice digs in and gets the shivering fellow back to the barn. Soon she and Blossom are like sister and brother. Beatrice even teaches him to play marbles--sort of. The mice engage in vocabulary-building banter as they seek to provide stability and safety for their adopted multi-species brood, including Kitten and The Peep, a newbie duckling. Using recycled findings, Cletus invents a vehicle just in time to help Blossom retrieve a precious object of admiration and overcome his biggest fear in the bargain. But it's a hop, spin, wobble kind of a day when Blossom loses all his marbles and Beatrice stumbles on more than one way to win.
