Schiffer’s superstar rabbit and his lady friend Roxanne make another journey to the edge of the meadow. They watch intently as the children there gather natural objects for their altars. Grandmother Spinner explains it all as the pair of hares look and listen with fascination. In this second tale, Rupert and Roxanne are joined by several of their forest friends as a mysterious Lady answers their questions about the moon.

Osborn’s soft pastels are the perfect medium to capture the inquisitive fuzziness of Rupert and his friends, and Kyrja’s lyrical voice penetrates the ether to share fairly sophisticated spiritual philosophy in a way young children can understand and embrace.
