Twitchy and his family eat carrots and live in a burrow just like an ordinary rabbit family. But one day Milfoil the cow and Sedge the horse decide to tell Twitchy they are not his real rabbit mum and dad. Twitchy is so upset he is convinced that he must turn himself into a horse or a cow so Sedge and Milfoil will still love him. So he pegs up his ears like a cow's and makes his tail long like a horse's; and he moos and he neighs just like his adoptive parents. But Milfoil and Sedge don't want him to change. They love him just as he is, as much as if they were his real mum and dad. And they always will!

About the Author:

Kes is Senior Copywriter at Saatchi and Saatchi. Mary McQuillan is a talented young illustrator, whose illustrations have also appeared in poetry collections and on greetings cards. She lives and works in Somerset.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-Twitchy the rabbit asks his parents why they don't hop like he does. They explain that even though they live in a burrow (an old train tunnel) and eat carrots (to help them see in the dark), they aren't his Bunnymom and Bunnypop. Twitchy's adopted mother is a cow, and his adopted father is a horse. The youngster is so upset when he hears this that he runs away from home. Milfoil and Sedge search everywhere but then head for home with heavy hearts. When they hear a voice, they gallop to the train tunnel to find Twitchy sitting by the entrance, covered in mud with his ears rolled up and secured by clothespins and a twig tied onto his tail. He tells them: "I can change. I promise I can change. I can be a cow or a horse. But please be my real mom and pop." Milfoil and Sedge assure him that they are his parents and love him and that they don't want him to change. Pastel-colored illustrations invoke a feeling of calm and tranquility. This touching story will amuse readers as they, along with Twitchy, discover that being in a family is about love and acceptance.
