Rabbityness

Rabbit enjoys doing rabbity things, but he also loves un-rabbity things! When Rabbit suddenly disappears, no one knows where he has gone. His friends are desolate. But, as it turns out, Rabbit has left behind some very special gifts for them, to help them discover their own unrabbity talents! This is a stunning debut picture book by author/illustrator Jo Empson. Rabbityness celebrates individuality, encourages the creativity in everyone and positively introduces children to dealing with loss of any kind.

Our Review Panel says...

A vibrantly illustrated picture book about a rabbit with big personality. The other rabbits love his un-rabbity ways, especially how he fills the woods with colour and music. When rabbit suddenly disappears, the world seems a very sad and different place to his friends. Before long, the other rabbits discover that their friend has left them the materials to make art and music for themselves, and they can use it to celebrate his memory.
