Synopses & Reviews
Brown Rabbit is excited to make his first-ever trip to the city to visit his best friend, Little Rabbit. But the visit doesn?t go quite as planned. Little Rabbit is so busy making sure that they see all her favorite cafés, shops, and museums that she forgets the real reason for Brown Rabbit?s visit?to see her! It takes a lovely garden and a sweet surprise to show them both that all the hustle and bustle of the city is worth little without a good friend to share it with.
Lovingly told, this beautiful book by Scottish author-illustrator Natalie Russell reminds readers of the simple delight of friendship.
"Brown Rabbit is excited to visit Little Rabbit in the city, but Little Rabbit is so energized to show him around that she doesn't notice that he's having trouble keeping up. They eat at her favorite cafe, go sightseeing, and dress up for a party, at which point Brown Rabbit leaves Little Rabbit dancing exuberantly under a disco ball. She finds him back at the cafe, where he explains, 'I came to see you, not the city.' As in Moon Rabbit, the creamy colors of Russell's palette evoke both the magic of the city and the importance of trusted companionship. Ages 3 5. (May)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
