Illustrated by Susie Lee Jin

About The Book

Several competitive bunnies compete in an epic battle to claim a single carrot in this hilarious and sweet debut picture book about sharing.

Mine! No, Mine! No, Mine! Yours? Wait...ours?

Who does the carrot belong to? For a bunch of adorable bunnies, that question is up for an endless debate. Each bunny stakes a no nonsense claim on the juicy orange veggie with a resounding “Mine!” But as the chase heats up and a snowman gets in on the action, the battle for the carrot begins to get out of hand. Will the bunnies find a way to stop the madness…and share?

Told with only four words and filled with energetic illustrations, Susie Lee Jin puts an inventive twist on the concept of sharing with this laugh-inducing tale.
