Rabbit and Bear: The Pest in the Nest
Illustrated by Jim Field
Gorgeously illustrated and with a classic feel, this is a brilliantly funny story of a rabbit and a bear whose friendship is tested by a very noisy woodpecker ... Ideal for readers moving on from picture books.
'A perfect animal double-act.' (The Times, Book of the Week)
'PEACE AND QUIET,' shouts Rabbit. 'THAT'S ALL I WANT.'
Owch. He's hurt his own ears again.
What with Bear's snoring, and a BANG!BANG!BANG! noise from up in the tree, Rabbit knows that Something Simply Has To Be Done.
But high in the branches, perhaps Bear can show Rabbit how to see the world from a different place ...
From novelist and playwright Julian Gough, and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Jim Field, this is a tale of friendship, wisdom, and how to be REALLY NOISY.
'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

Read all the Rabbit and Bear books:
1. Rabbit's Bad Habits
2. The Pest in the Nest
3. Attack of the Snack
4. A Bite in the Night
Rabbit's Bad Habits should become an instant modern classic. Stands shoulder to shoulder with Pooh and Toad. Cheeky, delightful and hilarious.
A perfect animal double-act enchants.
Alex O'Connell, The Times
It's a lovely story about friendship...something which will get handed on to younger brothers and sisters (because it's a book for boys and girls) and probably onto the next generation. It's timeless....It could be a godsend for the child with dyslexia: the clear font makes it ideal for an emerging reader and the good quality paper means that there's no bleed-through from the reverse of the page which can distract a learner or someone suffering from dyslexia
