Day 5 - Story 5
Rabbit Fever by Jackie Horsfall
The fifth story in Beware the Little White Rabbit is Rabbit Fever by Jackie Horsfall. I found this story to be unique and well written. It was well paced and full of emotion. I really enjoyed it very much. Anything with a sort of historical twist to it usually catches my interest and this was no exception. I've found another author to add to my watch list.
Jackie knew she wanted to write when a high school English teacher scolded her for writing a book report on a banned book. Jackie didn't know the book had been banned -- or even that books COULD be banned.
Now she does it all: fiction & nonfiction, 21 books & hundreds of magazine pieces, for kids, teens and adults. For 15 years she taught writing courses for the Institute of Children's Literature. Her early writing career began in Washington, DC, at the White House Correspondence Section -- answering the President's mail.
Jackie lives in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, deep in the woods where mushrooms form fairy circles.
