King Murray's Royal Tail


Kathryn R. Smith

with illustrations by Karen Scott

Have you ever thought about what happens to a live Easter Bunny once Easter is over?

King Murray's Royal Tail is the story of such an Easter Bunny.  Murray eventually finds a forever home, where he is an important part of the family, a true companion animal.  But his journey to reach this home is not an easy one.

Murray's story is based on the life of one of Kathy Smith's rescued rabbits, who shared her life for almost five years.  As Murray's bond with Kathy deepened, she recognized him as a wise and majestic soul who had much to teach her.  His courage and wry wit inspired Kathy to share his story with the world.

Karen Scott's beautiful, realistic illustrations capture Murray's true spirit, bringing this majestic character and his companions to life.  His story will touch the hearts of animal lovers of all ages.

Once you have met King Murray, you will see rabbits in a whole new way!
