The Lovereading4Kids comment

How many carrots is too many? That’s a question Rabbit would find impossible to answer. He’s piled so many up in his burrow that there’s no room left for him. Tortoise kindly offers to share his house, then Bird does, Squirrel and Beaver – each time disaster follows: Rabbit insists on bringing so many carrots with him that his neighbours’ homes collapse under the weight. At last Rabbit sees how greedy he’s been and invites everyone to stay at his home, clearing a space by creating a wonderful carrot-based feast! Readers will enjoy the comic build up to Rabbit’s epiphany and the animal characters are delightful creations. Katy Hudson makes carrots look absolutely delicious too – expect demands for carrot soup and carrot cake! ~ Andrea Reece


Too Many Carrots by Katy Hudson

Rabbit loves carrots. Maybe a little too much. In fact, his carrots are crowding him out of his cosy burrow. When his friends offer to help — that’s just asking for trouble. TOO much trouble! This charming and lovingly illustrated picture book shows how friendships get us over the rough spots in life, even if the going gets a little bumpy!

There are some fantastic downloads which accompany this book -

Colouring in and puzzle pages and a yummy recipe for Carrot Cupcakes!


Praise for Bear and Duck

Debut author/illustrator Hudson delights readers with expressive, endearing characters and sweetly ridiculous situations. A charming story of friendship and acceptance, distinguished by humorous and affectionate illustrations. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

...the text has a cozy, Milne-infused flavor, with lots of lively dialogue. There are also dollops of humor. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

About the Author

Katy Hudson

Katy Hudson grew up in Middlesbrough, England, and started her illustration career as a small child drawing on freshly painted walls around the house! Her parents quickly dissuaded her from using this medium and encouraged her to draw with pencil and paper instead. The idea stuck (the pencil was updated to an inkpot and pen in some cases), and after some lovely time at art college and a degree in illustration, Katy is now a freelance illustrator based in Greenwich, London. She won the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Book Award Gold in 2014 for her illustrations in the book Animal Teachers.
