The Lovereading4Kids comment

Award winning Children's Laureate Julia Donaldson has created a delightfully entertaining picture book that celebrates poems of all kinds. All the rabbits are sick of hearing the rhyming rabbit’s poems for every occasion. Forlornly, the rabbit sets off to find someone who can appreciate his rhyming habit. He has no luck with a worm, a mole or a centipede but luckily happens on a sheep with the same gift. Great happiness follows. Lydia Monks’ sparkling and tactile illustrations make a great accompaniment. A wonderful tale from the creators of the bestselling What the Ladybird Heard. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

The Rhyming Rabbit by Julia Donaldson

Poor Rhyming Rabbit is feeling lonely and left out. None of his fellow rabbits appreciate his carefully thought-out poems. And as for the other animals he meets? They just tell him to be quiet! Then one starry night he meets someone who shares his enthusiasm for poetry ...Bursting with Julia Donaldson's rhythmic, lyrical verse and Lydia Monks's bright, beautiful illustrations, The Rhyming Rabbit is now yours to own as a beautiful glittery board book.
