Roslyn Rutabaga is a feisty little rabbit with a vivid imagination. One day she wakes up with a big plan: "I will dig the biggest hole on earth. Not a tiny mouse hole. Not a medium-sized rabbit hole. The Biggest Hole on Earth!" With her father’s quiet encouragement, Roslyn sets out on her big adventure, but obstacles abound a grumpy worm, a grouchy mole, and a bone-hogging dog get in her way. Will she find a pirate’s treasure or a dinosaur bone? Will she meet a penguin? Anything could happen! Marie-Louise Gay’s humorous and endearing tale is an ode to the imagination and determination of children who create their own worlds out of the little things in life.
