"We've always been your mom and pop. And you'll always be our Twitchy!"

"Pop," said Twitchy, "why don't you and Mom hop like I do?"

Twitchy and his parents live in a burrow and munch on carrots, just like any bunny family. But when Twitchy wonders why he doesn't look like his parents, the answer surprises him. How can the three of them truly be a family if they're not really the same?

With lots of love (and plenty of carrots) Twitchy's parents show him that they are indeed a family after all. This sweet, funny adoption story will appeal to children and parents alike.
