The Perilous Performance at Milkweed Meadow

by Elaine Dimopoulos. After their remarkable rescue, the meadow creatures are back--now closer than ever and with beloved rabbit Butternut still captivating them all with her storytelling. But when a dazzling group of traveling turkeys shows up and persuades the meadow creatures to join them in putting on a performance, Butternut is not sure she can find her place in all the excitement. She questions her storytelling abilities compared to this new crew. When it turns out the turkeys--and the grand show--are not what they seem, Butternut’s family and friends are suddenly in imminent danger. Butternut must figure out how to trust herself and find help. In the end, the hope is that friendship will win once more. Beautiful and arresting black-and-white illustrations bring the animals to life in this nail-biting and heartwarming story about trust: trusting our instincts, trusting our creative talents, and trusting those who know and love us, even when it’s hard.
