An utterly seductive book
A brilliant read for newly independent readers, but also a great read aloud: adults will enjoy it as much as listeners I suspect
Julian Gough's tale of acceptance is like mindfulness for young readers and Jim Field's palette of greens makes it one of the most calming illustrated books you'll see this year
Rabbit just wants a moment of peace -- will Bear be able to teach him to view the world from a new perspective?
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
Who could fail to love this gorgeously illustrated tale?
The Rabbit and Bear series ... goes from strength to strength with The Pest in the Nest, in which Spring has sprung and Rabbit is out of sorts with everyone, whether they're loud and happy or sad and slow. His belligerence ("I'm angry! And I want to be calm!" So I'm angry that I'm angry!") and Bear's wry, gentle responses are illuminated by Field's radiant palette of yellow-greens and greys, creating an utterly seductive book
This is an ideal series for children progressing from picture books - there are plenty of illustrations to accompany satisfying storylines. The chunky hardback book has a classic feel and the story of friendship is one to return to over and over again.
Full of humour - a real joy to read
Fabulously funny... Jim Field's rich, glorious, colour illustrations work in perfect harmony with Julian Gough's text.
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.
This is a laugh-out-loud, soon-to-be-your favourite story
