Rabbit and Bear: Attack of the Snack
Illustrated by Jim Field
Gorgeously illustrated and with a classic feel, this is a brilliantly funny story of a rabbit and a bear whose happy summer day is interrupted by a Mysterious Thing ... Ideal for readers moving on from picture books.
'A perfect animal double-act.' (The Times, Book of the Week)
SPLASH! A Mysterious Thing lands in Rabbit and Bear's peaceful summer lake.
Is it exciting, or terrifying? Is it a tiny fluffy owl, or a huge hungry monster? And has Rabbit finally met a creature with worse habits than himself?
Rabbit's SURE he can solve this mystery. But when he accidentally turns the Best Day Ever into the Worst Day Ever, he needs Bear's help ...
From novelist and playwright Julian Gough, and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Jim Field, this is a tale of friendship, acceptance, and what you can do with blueberry poo.
'Rabbit's Bad Habits is a breath of fresh air in children's fiction, a laugh-out-loud story of rabbit and wolf and bear, of avalanches and snowmen. The sort of story that makes you want to send your children to bed early, so you can read it to them.' Neil Gaiman

I like Rabbit & Bear - which could appeal to both boys and girls - because they are sweet, funny and beautifully illustrated books with around 100 pages. Clever and charming books for young readers!
Mummy In the City
When readers aged 8-10 stop giggling at the bird burps, musical farts and amazing uses for blueberry poo (eeuw!) they might also ponder the dangers of prejudice and benefits of acceptance that this witty little illuminates.
Evening Echo (Cork)
The latest in a series of neat little chapter books with funny pictures, poo jokes, a bear, a bigoted rabbit and life lessons. This one is a bout a tiny owl blown in from elsewhere, and how prejudice works.
