Adventures and mysteries await a young lop-eared rabbit when he accidentally falls through a hole in an old white fence.

With no way back to his shady, comfortable yard, Montgomery sets out to explore the world beyond. Along the way, he meets a field rabbit named Bentley, and the two are off in search of a legendary raspberry patch. Their mission is a treacherous one, and Montgomery will come face-to-face with predators he’s never known before—coyotes, hawks, and even a rattlesnake! But the two rabbits find that by helping each other, and by accepting the help of a few new friends, they just might reach their treasure: a patch of juicy red raspberries!

Montgomery and Bentley’s adventure is one of danger, excitement, and self-discovery, as the rabbits learn important life lessons and discover a friendship to last a lifetime.

Sandy Little is a wife and mother living in Hidden Hills, California. Sandy has enjoyed a 25-year career in the entertainment business— on both sides of the camera—and is excited to bring her visual and storytelling skills to her first book, Montgomery Rabbit, which was inspired by her own childhood memories of playing in her grandfather’s raspberry patch, and by her love for family. Sandy is a passionate chef, photographer, and traveler.
