Never seen a jackalope? Not even sure what one is ? Well, you've come to the right place. You'll get the whole wild story right here in this book.
You see, the jackalope didn't start out with horns. First he was a plain old hare. You know, a jackrabbit. The horns came later, along with a corny fairy godrabbit and a cranky coyote. And the trouble those horns brought-- hoooo-wee!
With a gut-busting brew of sassy storytelling and outrageous art, Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel finally give the jackalope his due. After all, he's long been part of American legend--isn't it time to tell the real story?

I had hopes this book would resonate with the classic jackalope of Western American legend or even better if it had relevance to Indigenous mythologies, but instead this is a tale told in rhyming-silly prose about a jackrabbit who wishes to be noticed, even feared. This is a parable about self-acceptance & honesty. The story includes a coyote sort of foil or trickster, but in this version the jackalope's legend is limited to it's origin from a pronghorn ("antelope") and jackrabbit pairing.
