"No, you silly little bunny. The very special thing that came tonight could not come up the
path through the field. Come inside and see for yourself," said Jasper with a twinkle in his eyes.
So, Little Muslin Bunny, Baby Mouse, Baby Deer, and Morgan, the little
girl, bounced excitedly indoors to see their wonderful surprise. They made such a loud noise that Jasper stopped them
at the door.
"Shhhh! You have to be very quiet. It might be sleeping," Jasper gently told the four
The four friends tip-toed through the door. They quivered with excitement to find out what kind
of surprise sleeps.
"Maybe it's a puppy," whispered Baby Mouse.
"Maybe it's a kitten," whispered Baby Deer.
"Or maybe it's a little bird," whispered Morgan.
Little Muslin Bunny was too excited to even make a guess.
"In here with Mother Bunny. Just make sure you stay quiet. Mother Bunny is very tired,"
One at a time Little Muslin Bunny, Baby Mouse, Baby Deer, and Morgan, the little girl, tip-toed into
Mother Bunny's bedroom. Mother Bunny was propped up in bed on some pillows. She snuggled a little package wrapped
in a soft pink blanket to her chest.
