Mr B's review

The latest in a superb, witty series we love at Mr B’s and which is perfect for early readers. Rabbit is one of life’s worriers. Luckily his neighbour Bear is always at hand to lend with a gentle life lesson such as my favourite ever line “worrying doesn’t fix things. But breakfast does”! With brekky consumed, Rabbit and Bear need to put their heads together with their woodland pals to solve the mystery of the disappearing trees.


Gorgeously illustrated and with a classic feel, this is a brilliantly funny story of a rabbit and a bear … on the day that a new creature arrives in their valley, trying to Change Everything. Ideal for readers moving on from picture books.

‘A perfect animal double-act.’ (The Times, Book of the Week)

Rabbit is surprised: some of the trees in the valley seem to be flying south for the winter.

His friend Bear is sure that trees can’t fly.

Then there’s a loud CRUNCH! from Very Near By. It sounds like the world’s largest rabbit, eating the world’s largest carrot.

There’s a new creature in Rabbit and Bear’s valley, and he’s trying to Change Everything.

From novelist and playwright Julian Gough, and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Jim Field, this is a tale of Mystery! Friendship! Progress! … and all kinds of getting muddy.

‘Rabbit’s Bad Habits is a breath of fresh air in children’s fiction, a laugh-out-loud story of rabbit and wolf and bear, of avalanches and snowmen. The sort of story that makes you want to send your children to bed early, so you can read it to them.’ Neil Gaiman
