A charmingly illustrated children's picture book.

A story about teamwork, cleverness, and most importantly, kindness…

Can a lone girl rabbit with all the odds stacked against her actually surprise boastful Jimmy Squirrel to win the big tree house construction contest?

It is the end of summer and the beginning of a new school year, Jimmy Squirrel, whose dad owns the biggest construction company in the city, agrees to a tree house contest. To everyone"s surprise, Paisley Rabbit, who has never touched a hammer or a nail and has no one to help her, is a long shot to win. But the imaginative and determined Paisley, demonstrates her resourcefulness and strategic planning abilities that eventually amazes her friends and silences the smug Jimmy Squirrel.

Chris Dunn's phenomenal talent exquisitely complements this delightful tale of defying the odds and believing in yourself, proving that imagination, cooperation, and compassion will always win the odds.

And critics agree, because Paisley Rabbit and the Treehouse Contest is the recipient of two well-deserved awards: Book of the Year (Creative Child Magazine) and Best Picture Book (Indie Book Awards).
