Heather and Picket are extraordinary rabbits with ordinary lives until calamitous events overtake them, spilling them into a cauldron of misadventures. They discover that their own story is bound up in the tumult threatening to overwhelm the wider world. Kings fall and kingdoms totter. Tyrants ascend and terrors threaten. Betrayal beckons, and loyalty is a broken road with peril around every bend. Where will Heather and Picket land? How will they make their stand?

"A captivating story with sword-bearing rabbits, daring quests, and moments of poignant beauty, The Green Ember is a tale that will delight and inspire young readers to courage and creativity." --Sarah Clarkson, Author of Read for the Heart and Caught Up In A Story

"I don't usually tell people that there is a book they absolutely-must-no-questions-HAVE-TO-without-a-doubt read. But this one? How shall I put this? If I could choose only one book for my kids to read this year, this would be it. How's that for a recommendation? Go get it! Officially our favorite read-aloud ever. I'm recommending this to everyone who happens to lend me their ear for 5 seconds. From the Read-Aloud Revival to S.D. Smith: thank you for giving us this beautiful gem!"  --Sarah Mackenzie, Author of Teaching From Rest, Host of The Read-Aloud Revival Podcast

"S. D. Smith has a voice for children and families that the world needs to hear." --Randall Goodgame, singer/songwriter for Slugs & Bugs, Veggie Tales
