Randolph's Adventure
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Randolph Rabbit set off on his first adventure away from the warren. He had not gone very far when the smell of fresh vegetables was almost too much to bear. He stretched this way and that until finally he could see on the other side of the cedar boards. The radishes were red, the corn was ripe, and the carrots were ready. The thought of stealing from a garden made Randolph a bit nervous. The farmer had taken extra precautions to keep unwanted visitors away. There were cedar boards fastened with wire surrounding the garden on all sides. Funny looking boxes were propped up at the end of the rows. He wasn't sure what the boxes were for, but Randolph was hungry, and the smell of those beet tops and carrots were making his nose twitch.
 
2     Randolph also knew there was only one way a rabbit could get to those ripe vegetables. He began to dig. He dug under the fence. He dug, and dug, and dug. When he thought his tunnel was just right, Randolph poked his head up through the ground. He came up right under a watermelon vine.
 
3     "Oh, yum!" thought Randolph. A big, juicy carrot top was staring him right in the face. Straightaway he began munching on the carrots. After that, Randolph ate the sweet beets. Randolph ate and ate until his tummy was full. Randolph began to feel drowsy. He was ready for a nap.
