Little Rabbit hears the drums and watches performers parade by. He really wants to go to the circus! His mother says he may go, but only after he cleans his playroom. Little Rabbit tries, but it’s no use. There’s only one thing to do: Join the circus and sell one hundred tickets to see the Meanest Mother on Earth! She’s terrifying! She’s not fair!
Mother Rabbit is tough, but only because she loves her Little Rabbit. He starts to understand this at the last sleepy moment, as he snuggles up under a homemade circus tent in his now clean playroom.
