Cowboy bunnies wake at sunrise and off they go, riding their ponies, roping cattle, mending fences, and tossing hay.  When evening falls, they gather round the campfire to feast and play their fiddles.  But soon cowboy bunnies are rubbing their sleepy eyes, and it's time to head home, where mamas sing sweet lullabies, and papas softly harmonize.

About the Author

Christine Loomis may have a habit of writing picture books on long car trips with her family, but "Cowboy Bunnies" was written on a plane trip. Her inspiration came from a dream her mother had one night, of bunnies in cowboy outfits, jumping hurdles.

An editor, writer, and children's book reviewer, Ms. Loomis loves in Boulder, Colorado, with her husband, their three children, and one bunny. She has written several children's books, and this is her first for Putnam. copyright (c) 2000 by Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers. All rights reserved.
