Longlisted for the inaugural Klaus Flugge Prize, an important new illustration prize for children's books.One of our Books of the Year 2015 - Shortlisted for the Scottish Children's Book Awards 2015 3-7 age category - January 2015 Debut of the Month When Arthur’s favourite books start to vanish from his shelves the only clue he has is a few well-nibbled carrots that the thief has left behind. Can his book thief really be a rabbit? Not surprisingly, the police refuse to believe Arthur so he sets out on his own quest to track down the thief! It soon turns out that Ralfy Rabbit and Arthur have a lot in common. They book love books! Soon Arthur introduces Ralfy to the library and everyone is happy again!
A huge advocate of libraries, Emily hopes that Ralfy will help to encourage a love of them in a new generation “With the recent cuts to libraries I want to remind children and parents about the joy of books. I hope they'll explore the huge range out there and reap the benefits of their local library, just as I did as a child”.

Wanted! Ralfy Rabbit, Book Burglar by Emily MacKenzie
Some rabbits dream about lettuces and carrots, others dream of flowering meadows and juicy dandelions, but Ralfy dreams only of books. In fact, he doesn't just dream about them, he wants to read them ALL THE TIME. Soon his obsession sends him spiralling into a life of crime! A wonderfully funny story from a talented new author/illustrator.
