It takes a bold author to write a tale so reminiscent of Peter Rabbit, but Faber pulls it off. Grab that Rabbit! is beautifully, simply told, with languid illustrations by Briony May Smith that complement the suspenseful plot. And the delightful twist to the tale will make this a story that younger readers will wish to return to over and over again.
Reminiscent of Peter Rabbit, this beautifully illustrated rhyming picture book is, ultimately, a tale of friendship. Briony May Smith’s rich illustrations evoke nature and Mrs Sprat’s garden is a joy to behold – and Hodge’s ending is a happier one than Peter’s being sent to bed without supper.
