The Lazy Rabbit Startling New Grim Modern Fable About Laziness With A Rabbit, Vole And Fox by Wilkie J. Martin; Illustrated by Tanja Russita

The rabbit and the vole are traveling together through a barren land.  The rabbit wants to stop for the night but the vole says they need wood for a fire to keep them safe from bandits at night.  The vole ends up carrying most of the sticks because the rabbit is lazy.  They start the fire and then the vole starts discussing taking turns sitting up to refresh the fire.  He also suggests they need more wood.  The rabbit says they don't need more wood, they have plenty and he's going to bed.

The Witcherley Book Company and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now. 

The vole can't get the rabbit to stand watch so he sleeps at two-hour increments and keeps feeding the fire.  But when it starts to rain the fire starts to go out and he's got to go get more wood.  While he's gone, a fox sneaks into camp and takes the rabbit.

It doesn't pay to be lazy...
