Fierce Bad Rabbits : The Tales Behind Children's Picture Books Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

What is The Tiger Who Came to Tea really about? How is Meg and Mog related to Polish embroidery? And why does death in picture books involve being eaten?

Fierce Bad Rabbits explores the stories behind our favourite picture books, weaving in tales of Clare Pollard's childhood reading and her re-discovery of the classic tales as a parent. Because the best picture books are far more complex than they seem - and darker too.

Monsters can gobble up children and go unnoticed, power is not always used wisely, and the wild things are closer than you think. 'A gem . . . hard to put down. Thoroughly enjoyable' Spectator'Essential reading for every thinking parent' Penelope Lively'An enlightening, perceptive analysis of the books that build us' Sunday Telegraph, 5 star review'A happy way to reconnect with old friends' Times
