Its hero, young Solomon, is an ordinaryrabbit--well, ordinary in every respect but one. Whenever he scratches his nose and wiggleshis toes at exactly the same time, he turns into a rusty nail. To turn back into a rabbit, all he hasto do is thing: Im no nail, Im a rabbit!This unusual talent enables Solomon to play some gratifying practical jokes, but it also leads to serious trouble when hes waylaid by a one-eyed cat who plans to turn him into Hasenpfeffer. Solomon promptly becomes a rusty nail and steadfastly refuses to change back, even after Ambrose, the cat, and his wife, Clorinda, lock him up in a cage in their guest room. Sooner or later, they figure, theyll be dining no bunny stew. How can Solomon possibly find a way out of this dilemma?
