In the tradition of WATERSHIP DOWN comes a brilliant novel about foxes, rabbits, and the cold calculation that leads to war.

Imagine a world in which there are no people, but foxes are civilized. They wear clothes, they fight, they elect corrupt officials. They eat all kinds of things, but only lower orders with limited brainpower. Like mice. Or rabbits.

Now imagine that one day the rabbits disappear, and slowly develop their OWN society away from the foxes. What happens when the two societies once again collide? A TASTE FOR RABBIT is a brilliant, piercing look at Harry the Fox, Quentin the Rabbit, the price of honor, and the "animal" parts of human nature.

Disguising human nature behind animals works in picture books, but the tween and teen target audience of this book will probably not want to read a book about talking animals, especially talking animals who are parents and business owners rather than teens.
