Little Rabbit's Big Surprise, Hardback Book

Little Rabbit's Big Surprise Hardback

Illustrated by Alison Friend

Part of the Colour Fiction series



Little Rabbit is bored. Her brothers and sisters are busy with chores and her friends are out collecting worms.

Her grandfather, Big Rabbit, offers to make her his assistant for the day - he's got lots of work she can help him with.

Little Rabbit laughs; her grandfather doesn't have a job - he spends all day with his friends. "Why don't you come with me and see?" replies Big Rabbit. First they visit Mole, who has a problem with his dark tunnels, before hopping over to visit Granny Hedgehog, who's suffering with a rather nasty cold.

As they're leaving they meet Dormouse who's struggling to keep his babies happy while he forages for twigs for their nest.

The last stop is Squirrel's den, but the usually acrobatic Squirrel has sprained her paw.

After helping her, they head home - what a busy day!

In the morning Little Rabbit wakes to find her grandfather has left her a list of things to collect.

Little Rabbit's excited, certain that the things are for making a kite, but she's in for a big surprise...

A heartwarming story about helping others and spreading kindness.
