Roslyn, the Reluctant Rattlesnake
Thomas Fullmer, author
Roslyn, the Reluctant Rattlesnake is a children’s story surrounding the life of Roslyn, a diamondback rattlesnake, who has one problem: she wants a friend, but eats any forest friend who comes near enough to even say “Hi!” Follow Roslyn on her journey through life in which she either comes to accept herself for who she is or perishes from hunger. Guilt-ridden upon eating any other animal in the forest, Roslyn must come to understand what it means to be a rattlesnake. Along the way, she discovers what friendship is all about. Roslyn comes to know who she really is, and how to deal with her inner conflict of needing to eat to survive and wanting to have a forest friend.
