The Lovereading4Kids comment
Attractively packaged for emerging readers, All Because of Jackson is the story of a most unusual rabbit. While his friends burrow and play, Jackson sits of the cliff side watching the tall ships coming and going. All he wants to do is sail away across the sea – taking his girl friend Bunny with him. And that’s just what Jackson does. How the rabbits live aboard Atalantis and how they find Australia when they reach it is a lively story that also tells something of the true story of how rabbits reached Australia.

'Dick King-Smith is surely the master of the animal story.....charming and humorous tale...shows why Dick King-Smith is such a favourite with so many young readers.'
'An unusual theme that gives rise to a great deal of humour.... The illustrations are jaunty and the writing uncluttered and unsentimental'
'Dick King-Smith at his best: an ingenious account of the way rabbits got to Australia. Don't be deceived by its apparent simplicity: it stands reading and re-reading, and each time you chuckle at something different'
