IF ... Toy

           Rabbit bought me a little something today. I just love it!
           It has an interesting terrain for running and climbing.
           And lots and lots of places for playing Hide and Sleep.
           Come on, Mr. Buns! Let's go have some big, fat fun!

      Below is the illustration in it's entirety. I cropped illustration to create
      two images, with the goal of creating more
storytelling drama by unfolding
      the visual gradually.

IF ... Cultivate

TOGETHER is the only way to cultivate a relationship. Beyond the exchange of ideas and news, we want to know what makes each other tick. Rabbit and I thought a trip to the library might speed our understanding. We found these titles enormously helpful. Perhaps you will too ...

• Hip-Hop 4 Dummies
• If You Give a Mouse a Cookie 
• Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Lagomorphs 
   (but were afraid to ask)
• Rabbits are from Mars, Mice are from Venus
• Who Moved My Cheese?

IF ... Stir

Toss in carrots and fears,
A few radishes and tears.
Add hopes and dreams,
And a few darker schemes.
Gently simmer this brew
(It satisfies two).
