In Milkweed Meadow an anxious young rabbit named Butternut believes her family’s teachings about sticking to her own kind. But when a persistent robin named Piper persuades her to visit a hurt fawn, she finds herself sneaking out at night, collecting thrilling adventures and enjoying the new feeling of helping other creatures. But the dangers are real: There’s a mean blue jay bullying the meadow dwellers—and worse, a hungry coyote on the prowl. In the end Butternut must decide whether to defy her family’s beliefs and organize a daring rescue that involves the entire meadow, transforming it forever in the process.
