When Marina forgets to feed her vicious pet bunny, Nibbles turns into a terrible monster who eats everything in sight. How can Marina survive?
Marina once had an evil pet rabbit named Nibbles. Nibbles was a beautiful rabbit, black and silky, but she was kind of scary, too, because every time Marina would try to feed Nibbles, Nibbles would run toward the door of her cage and try to bite her.
Nibbles would try to bite anyone who came too close to her cage. She would take cute sniffs at anyone near her cage, with her nose wiggling open and shut. She was very cute, until someone put their fingers through the cage, and then chomp! Several of Marina’s friends were missing parts of their fingers because Nibbles had bitten them when they came to visit. No one was allowed to visit Marina’s house anymore.
But then Marina forgot to feed Nibbles for two days, and something even worse happened. Nibbles didn’t starve to death or get weak from lack of food, like Marina’s parents warned her. Instead, Nibbles started to grow.
In the afternoon of the first day, when Marina came home from school, Nibbles was as big as a cat.
Marina’s mom said, “Marina? Did you remember to feed your pet rabbit? I don’t think you did.”
Marina was playing and said, “Yes, mom,” and promised herself that she would feed Nibbles in just a minute. However, Marina forgot. She didn’t feed Nibbles all that night, and in the morning of the second day that she forgot to feed her rabbit, Nibbles was as big as a dog. She was getting so big that she didn’t fit in her cage very well, and by that afternoon, Nibbles had exploded out of her cage and was hopping around the back yard. Nibbles ate everything in the back yard: grass, flowers, trees, the playhouse, the sidewalks, her cage, the lawn mower, and a whole bunch of rocks.
When Marina came home, Nibbles had licked all the paint off the house and was chewing on the fence. Nibbles had grown almost as big as the house.
Marina decided it was time to feed her rabbit, before her rabbit decided to eat her.
