Meet the Authors
Hopping to America
A series of three books; A Rabbits Tale of immigration, A Rabbit's Tale of LaBafana, A Rabbit's Tale of a Wedding, follow the Riepule family from Italy to the United States. They land on Ellis Island to be processed for entry to the USA and venture on to Clarksburg, WV, taking their Italian heritage and culture to their new home. Each book brings the two cultures together with stories of the trip to America, a Christmas celebration, and a very special wedding. Illustrated by Ashley (Teets) Belote, these bunnies light up the pages of this multicultural children's book series.
