Little Rabbit’s Big Surprise

Swapna Haddow & Alison Friend

(Stripes)- hardback

Big Rabbit doesn’t do very much according to Little Rabbit. She’d prefer to be in the sunshine with Little Mole and Little Hedgehog. However, they’re helping Big Hedgehog collect slugs and worms for tea! Little Rabbit is stuck with being Big Rabbit’s assistant. Thus begins Little Rabbit’s Big Surprise.
Big Rabbit does rather more than spend all day with his friends! As Little Rabbit follows her grandfather on his call route, she watches and learns. She begins to make suggestions. Her thoughts go beyond carrots and shiny paper and kites. In fact, might Little Rabbit be inspired by her day? It seems it’s nothing as she expected! What’s more, she’s enjoying it! Then again, might she have something to share with her friends, something, in fact, that she’d like to return to?
Little Rabbit’s Big Surprise is a charming, sincere and very satisfying book. In fact, Bookwagon recommends this winning title as ideal for readers building experience, and then to treasure, too.  There’s something in Alison Friend‘s gentle illustrations that seem almost secretive and warm with discovery. What’s more, it’s a lovely inclusion in this publishers’ Colour Fiction, which includes another favourite, The Hat Full of Secrets.
