This week’s story…
Grab That Rabbit!
words by Polly Faber
illustrations by Briony May Smith
From renowned children’s author Polly Faber and Stardust illustrator Briony May Smith comes an exciting and gorgeous new picture book that features a Peter Rabbit for the 21st century… Hodge, an adorable bunny, is minding his own business… well, he’s stealing some carrots from Mrs Sprat’s garden, actually…
when he ends up stuck in the hedge. Mrs Sprat advances, wanting to get rid of the pesky bunny, and a buzzard overheard spies a tasty rabbit dinner, too. Can Hodge escape from bird of prey and angry gardener in time to take the carrots home? The lyrical story, by Polly Faber, is perfect for reading aloud and packed with page-turning suspense.
Illustrated by Briony May Smith, each page is full of detailed visual delights. A beautiful tale about kindness and forgiveness, packed with adventure and peril.
