The pet rabbit population of the United States is well over ten million...and rapidly multiplying! Carrying less risk of diseases for their human companions than do domestic dogs or cats, rabbits are gentle, responsive, amenable, cuddly, clever, intelligent, and inexpensive. In sum, they're ideal pets and they deserve the best of human attention.

Interspersed throughout are "Did You Know?" sidebars featuring little-known facts about our beloved furry friends. 96 pages (all in color), 5 7/8 x 8 1/4.
