There is excitement in the air as Little Georgie tumbles down the Rabbit burrow to tell his parents that new folks are coming to the Big House. It's been some years since the Big House has been filled, and everyone knows that new folks may mean a good garden. Food has been scarce for the animals. The last tenants had not planted a garden at all. As more and more signs of the approaching new tenants appear, the excitement grows, but Mother Rabbit begins to worry. The new tenants may have dogs or cats, they might set traps, and they might even have Boys! The new folks come, and the animals' joy rises as they see that the new folks are kind, and considerate to all living creatures. They also make preparations to plant a garden. The animals can hardly believe it when they overhear the man saying that the wall to the garden was not going to be fixed, and no traps were to be set to rid of the animals. The neighbors begin to think that the new folks are crazy, and won't have a garden left when harvest time comes. What do you think? Rabbit Hill won the Newbery Medal in 1945.
