CUPCAKE WANTS SPACE PLEASE! 

By Catherine Catcho

Overheated from the oven. 

Space please!

Outrageously dressed. 

Space please! 

The event’s main attraction.

Space please!

So when aliens crashed the party, Cupcake found a ride to a cold, quiet, and roomy place.

Space please! 

Her outfit was snug, warm and ridiculous.

But she was over the moon.

Rainforest Rabbits

By Catherine Catcho

Rainforest rabbits nibble sweet orange snacks. 

Leafy greens.

Earthy treats. 

But…

they aren’t eating carrots. 

What’s a carrot? The rainforest rabbits don’t know.

So silly! For fluffy rabbits everywhere LOVE carrots. Why don’t they order some? 

Rainforest rabbits order these small seeds. 

Plant them.

Try them. 

But… 

they’re bitter! Thbbbt! Ick. 

What happened? The rainforest rabbits don’t know.

Oh, my. For hungry rabbits everywhere EAT carrots. Why don’t they hop north?

Rainforest rabbits jumping; seek out farms. 

Grocery stores.

Canning factories. 

But…

they aren’t given carrots. 

What should they do? The rainforest rabbits don’t know.

Think hard! For clever rabbits everywhere FIND carrots. Why don’t they try again? 

Rainforest rabbits reading; search through books.

Make plans.

Advertise selling… WAIT!

WHAT ARE YOU DOING? 

The rainforest rabbits DO know. 

Ah, ha! For curious rabbits everywhere WANT mangoes.
