The E.A.R.S. Saga
A rabbit makes friends with a skunk and a raccoon; they start the Emergency Animal Rescue Squad of Hawk Hill Connecticut (E.A.R.S.). Hundreds of animals come to take classes in animal rights, the vegan diet, yoga, and to enjoy non-violent social events. Wapi believes The Calm Method can change his world if he can get the support of his neighbors; but it’s easier said than done. He’s under constant pressure from his friends for wanting to help predators and humans and from his enemies who threaten, 'Stop trying to change us, or suffer the consequences.' On bad days he has nightmares, on good days he dreams of international peace.
#1 Dreaming of Animal Rights - Small animals who are tired of getting attacked start E.A.R.S. to promote peace, but their enemies laugh and continue to attack prey. E.A.R.S. offers classes in animal rights and The Calm Method of Thinking. A truck driver and his children get lost during a winter storm and E.A.R.S. is called to their first human rescue. 45,000 words.
#2 Teaching Peace to Predators - E.A.R.S. classes become more specialized: emergency rescue skills, love-hate enemies, survival skills. There's a big party at the E.A.R.S. command center cave, whispered to become "epic," with music, entertainment, dancing, and special effects. The predators cause problems.
#3 Animals Helping Humans - Although Wapi is a great leader, and peace and love are great ideas, when the animals finally meet the humans it's not a positive encounter. Everyone is tested in their belief about animal and human rights. The animals try to help the truck driver but there's a terrible accident.
#4 Keeping Peace Real - The animals struggle to get the truck driver home safely. His kids come up with a plan to have fun with their rescuers but it turns into a media circus. Wapi feels defeated, it seems E.A.R.S. accomplished nothing; the bullies are still attacking prey. Yet, animals throughout the United States have heard about The Calm Method and contact E.A.R.S. for information.
