Summary

Summary

This program includes an author's note read by the author. In Maryrose Wood's stunning middle-grade novel, Alice's Farm, a brave young rabbit must work with her natural predators to save her farmland home and secretly help the farm’s earnest but incompetent new owners. When a new family moves into Prune Street Farm, Alice and the other cottontails are cautious. The new owners are from the city; the family and their dog are not at all what the rabbits expect, and soon Alice is making new friends and doing things no rabbit has done before. When she overhears a plan by a developer to run the family off and bulldoze the farm, Alice comes up with a plan, helped by the farmer’s son, and other animals, including a majestic bald eagle. Here is a stunning celebration of life, the bitter and the sweet. Alice is some rabbita character listeners will love for generations to come. A Macmillan Audio production from Feiwel & Friends

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] captivating, wry novel…Into this heartwarming portrait of animal camaraderie (which is shared by a fox, a bald eagle, and other wildlife), Wood weaves the story of ten-year-old Carl Harvey’s rocky adjustment to his new life, burgeoning self-confidence and maturity, and paramount contribution to his family’s triumph. A resonant cross-species saga of perseverance, loyalty, and magnanimous friendship.” Publishers Weekly
“Farmers and rabbits have a great literary history as enemies, but what might they accomplish if they worked together? Wood offers a fanciful twist on Peter Rabbit…The focus on the natural world, quirky characters, and whimsical adventures make this a good read-aloud candidate for fans of Charlotte’s Web or other gentle farm stories.” School Library Journal
"Alice’s Farm is a restorative read, tender and wonderful. It’s a fantasy, it’s real, it’s just a joy. And absolutely a book for our times.” Rebecca Stead, Newbery Medal–winning author
