From beloved author/illustrator Nicola Killen comes an enchanting spring story about a magical friendship between a little girl and her stuffed rabbit who comes to life, lovingly told and illustrated in limited color with lovely foil and interactive die cut pages.
Ollie and her favorite friend bunny have been waiting for the rain to stop and spring to come, and at long last the sun arrives. Ollie puts on her rain boots, wraps bunny in a warm scarf, and the two set off for exploring. Then a sudden breeze whispers past and bunny’s nose twitches and their magical adventure begins…
The Little Rabbit is sure to enchant and charm young readers and is great for sharing with a friend.
In a follow-up to The Little Reindeer, a child called Ollie dressed in a bunny costume and her toy rabbit, Bunny, are eager to splash in rain puddles. When a petal tickles Bunny's nose, he comes to life, leaping from the basket to join a group of wild rabbits. Ollie gives chase over a pond, into a treehouse, onto a cloud, and ("Whooooosh!") all the way back home. Killen uses a grayscale palette with springtime yellow and green accents. Periodic die-cuts provide a greater sense of dimension, while occasional comics-style panels offer an episodic quality to the story. Raindrops, splashing water, and blowing petals are rendered in embossed flecks of gold foil, providing light enchantment to this quiet story of a rainy day adventure. Ages 4 8.
