Rabbit & Bear: The Pest in the Nest


How can Rabbit relax, sleep or practise mindfulness in a forest full of noise? Which suggested cure will ease him into sleep? Who can help? Tortoise, Woodpecker, Bear? How can Rabbit fulfil his aim of being Calm and Happy and Wise forever? Is Bear right that Rabbit is ‘driving himself crazy?’

While there is a sense of anticipation in the story of ‘Rabbit & Bear A Pest in the Nest‘ is anything but predictable!  The humour, 21st century dilemma and convincing character creation, draw the reader in. We are concerned yet amused by Rabbit’s problem and Bear’s interpretation of the seasonal world. At all times Julian Gough and Jim Field respect their young readers.  ‘Rabbit & Bear The Pest in the Nest‘ is an intelligent, kindly book deserving to be discussed, reread and thoroughly appreciated. This and its prequel have already starred in a child’s gift bag from me, and are likely to go into more. Bookwagon loves this title, in fat, the series.

Rabbit & Bear : The Pest in the Nest

Julian Gough and Jim Field


We return to Rabbit’s and Bear’s woodland home with Rabbit & Bear: The Pest in the Nest.  It seems that Rabbit can’t sleep. If it’s not Bear’s snoring, it’s Woodpecker’s hammering. All in all, Rabbit’s going crazy. What’s more, we know, as with Rabbit & Bear Attack of the Snack, that Rabbit’s mood affects everyone. In fact, everyone else is being driven crazy through Rabbit’s lack of sleep. What might be done?
Thereafter, we join Rabbit’s efforts to sleep. Could it be that Bear’s something up his paw that can help his friend? Might mindfulness help? After all Rabbit’s aim in life is to be ‘Calm and Happy and Wise‘ forever. Yet at this rate, he’s none of these things for a day (or night!) Then again, might advice, or even a good night’s sleep, be found through the support of Tortoise? Meanwhile, Bear’s full of the season. It seems he’s sensitive to all the changes and thereafter is rather distracted. Might he draw Rabbit’s attention away from his woes, The Pest in the NestJulian Gough and Jim Field delight with their woodland tales of philosophy, change and friendship. Furthermore, while this series is ideal for newer chapter book readers, we suggest they’re perfect reading fare for every age.
