Lettice is a little rabbit with big dreams!
As Lettice hops around on the hill with her family she sees a little bird flying overhead, swooping and looping and then soaring away.
'How wonderful it must be to fly,' Lettice thinks and from that moment she makes up her mind that somehow or other she will…
She tries flapping her arms and even flapping her ears but no matter how hard she tries she can’t lift off the ground. But then Lettice hears a whirring sound and she sees a small plane flying overhead. Lettice follows the plane until eventually she sees it land. It is just the right size for a small, plump rabbit and Lettice can’t resist trying the little seat. Suddenly the plane makes a loud rumbling noise. It lurchs forward and jolts…
up… into the sky…
beginning the most exciting adventure of Lettice’s life!
