In Rarest Riverine Rabbit of the Karoo, Louise Punt-Fouche weaves words and images to create awareness about the tame but endangered riverine rabbit that lives on her farm in the Karoo.

When Lila (an old lady that uses her walking stick to count all the animals on earth) wanders through the Karoo and meets the magnificent Bruno with his very, very long ears, his life changes forever. Rarest Riverine Rabbit of the Karoo  is a fable that hopes to make children and adults aware of the disastrous impact we have on a precious environment. The author’s magical illustrations will also introduce young readers to the rich plant and animal life of the Karoo.

Originals or prints of the illustrations can be ordered from the author. Also visit www.kredouwfarm.com and www. sashadonoharm.com to read about Louisa and her husband’s projects and their attempts to save the riverine rabbit.
