It's been years since I've read this book but the beautiful illustrations still stick with me. The entire Serendipity series was centered around a variety of moral and life lessons. Buttermilk is about being afraid of the unknown and using knowledge to conquer fear.

My favorite part of the story involves Buttermilk the bunny finding out that a dreaded dragon is only a willow tree... but if you look closely in the illustrations, there's a tiny, adorable dragon in the picture. Definitely a good boo
This is a wonderful book series for kids that want to work toward reading chapter books but are not quiet there yet. Every other page has a beautiful illustration next to a page that is not overwhelming with text.

In this story Buttermilk is on her way home to her bunny burrow when night comes sooner than anticipated. So many scary things hid in the shadows at night, and Buttermilk fears her fast feet are not fast enough to get her to safety.
Julia Brumfield
Adorable book that shows just how much the imagination plays havoc in the dark while Robin James does a great job of making those night-time monsters so graphic looking that you can agree with Buttermilk. And I love the idea how her father doesn't only comforts her but takes her out the next day to see what the actual monsters were. Loved the little dragon under the willow tree :)

Definitely one of the best.....

I remember this cover, so I'm pretty sure I read this one since I liked Squeakers so much.
