What Are You Waiting For?
Author: Scott Menchin; pictures by Matt Phelan
What are you waiting for?
Is it quiet?
Does it have wings?
Will I miss it if I blink?
Join a badger and a rabbit in this simple tale about the wonder of anticipation that follows the two friends in search of a surprise. What they find might just surprise you, too.
