Book Reviews

"It’s not the sound of a chainsaw in Michelle Fontaine’s backyard… it’s a loveable rabbit named Rhubarb! Eating everything! Late to Dinner is a delight. The animation’s rich but the pictures are real… and if I was a rabbit or a squirrel or a dog or a bird… I know exactly where I'd want to live!"

Todd Sentell, Author of Toonamint of Champions

"In Late to Dinner, the author zooms in on the high drama any of us might find in our back yard. Hers features Rhubarb the Rabbit, an ebullient but somewhat impervious creature in search of food. Rhubarb encounters a cadre of squirrels, chipmunks and other rabbits who challenge and help him in his quest. Cute, cute, cute all the way through, this story will bring your own back yard to life!" Jennifer Jill Schwirzer— Christian Author, Speaker, Musician, and Mental Health Counselor
