Brown Rabbit Her Story Author:Evangeline Morse This is a 1967 edition children's hardcover book with dust jacket. — Ceretha Jane, "Brown Rabbit" to her family, is ten years old when she and her parents leave the security of the southern college town for a northern steel-mill city. She thought her life was wonderful and could not understand why her married sister said there was more opportuni... more »ty for her in this drab, treeless, rundown neighborhood.
Being a "new girl" is not easy anywhere, but Brown Rabbit also has to overcome the antagonism of girls who feel she is inferior because she comes from the South. When they do not come to her birthday party, Stuffy, his friend, and Bernadette, try to make up for this, but the party remains a painful memory. It is Bernadette, though lacking in education and the social graces, who becomes her warm and loyal friend. And, of course, there are Mama and Papa, her loving parents.
Brown Rabbit's involvement in school and settlement house programs, her courage, and independence help her make a place for herself - and Bernadette. And before too long, life again is "wonderful".« less
