Proud of his long flowing tail, Rabbit spends his time dancing in a grove of willow trees, nibbling twigs, and dreaming of spring, until an accident occurs, in a retelling of an old Seneca legend.

One moonlit night when the world was young, Rabbit danced in a grove of willow trees, nibbling twigs from a raspberry bush and dreaming of the coming spring. Rabbit's tail flowed out behind him, for in those days it was long and thick like Squirrel's tail is today. In How Rabbit Lost His Tail, based on a Seneca legend, Ann Tompert's playful text and Jacqueline Chwast's elegant illustrations tell the story of Rabbit's embarrassing loss long ago in the magic of a woodland spring.
