The Lovereading4Kids comment
In a nutshell: laugh out loud story of bear and rabbit in the woods | There are lots of unusual friendships in children’s books, very few quite like the one described in this story, and virtually none so comic. Rabbit is such a grouch he can hardly pronounce the word ‘fun’, but then maybe that’s not surprising: he spends his days eating, pooing, then eating his poo. Bear on the other hand is the total opposite, she’s generous, content, and always ready to give people the benefit of the doubt. The story of how their friendship develops over the course of one snowy day (and via a narrow escape from a wolf) is funny, uplifting and beautifully told. Word-perfect, picture-perfect, this is a small work of genius. ~ Andrea Reece

Rabbit's Bad Habits by Julian Gough
From novelist and playwright Julian Gough, and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Jim Field, comes a laugh-out-loud funny story of a rabbit and bear who discover that things are always better when they're shared with a friend...
Bear wakes up early from hibernation. If she can't sleep, then at least she can make a snowman. Rabbit has never made a snowman, but he definitely wants to make one that's better than Bear's. But with an avalanche and a hungry wolf heading his way, Rabbit soon realises that it might be nice to have a friend on your side. Especially when it comes to building snowmen...
A tale of friendship, gravity, and just a little bit of poo.
Rabbit's Bad Habits is a breath of fresh air in children's fiction, a laugh-out-loud story of rabbit and wolf and bear, of avalanches and snowmen. The sort of story that makes you want to send your children to bed early, so you can read it to them. Neil Gaiman
