It’s not easy being a rabbit nowadays. Carrots are hard to find, traffic is dangerous, and big rabbit-chasing dogs are plentiful! Where can a rabbit go to escape the chaos of modern life? For three hassled hares, there’s just one solution—they’re heading to Mars! On Mars there’s no traffic, there are fields of giant carrots, and the dogs are all rabbit-friendly. But is too much of a good thing, just too much?

“The raucous action, with cartoony bunnies swinging on huge red carrots and suddenly dancing on their heads, is played out in an eye-catching combination of vibrant oils and digitalized photographs. Children will have fun with the story and easily grasp the lesson in contentment that Wahl serves up.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Schamber makes a colorful debut here, combining ‘Roger Rabbit’-like cartoon animals with digitally manipulated photographs into big, splashy swirls of action.”
