Spring Has Sprung!
Where's Thumper?

One chilly Spring night, Thumper (a particularly mischievous neighborhood Bunny) hopped into the book drop and made a nest out of chewed pages. A librarian wheeled in the basket of books before discovering him nestled inside. He’s chewing up books and leaving carrots strewn about the carpet. Can you help us?

Find Thumper and receive a prize at the Help Desk.
