|Series:||Pushkin Children's Collection|
Reclusive rabbit poet Fuzz McFlops has been a loner ever since his classmates teased him for his lopsided ears in his youth. Their unkindness hurt him deeply, but also served as inspiration for works such as The Withered Carrot and An Unlucky Rabbit Foot, which have propelled the troubled author to great fame. When a female fan gets in touch asking why he's so gloomy, the writer responds with typical grumpiness, but as their correspondence continues the two grow closer, and neither Fuzz's shyness, nor his attacks of anxiety-induced ear spasmitis can prevent a beautiful friendship from forming...
