Longlisted for the UKLA 2018 Book Award

Gorgeously illustrated and with a classic feel, this is a brilliantly funny story of a rabbit and a bear who discover that things are always better when they're shared with a friend. Ideal for readers moving on from picture books.

Synopsis

The Pest in the Nest Book 2 by Julian Gough

'A perfect animal double-act.' (The Times, Book of the Week)'PEACE AND QUIET,' shouts Rabbit. 'THAT'S ALL I WANT.'Owch. He's hurt his own ears again.What with Bear's snoring, and a BANG!BANG!BANG! noise from up in the tree, Rabbit knows that Something Simply Has To Be Done.But high in the branches, perhaps Bear can show Rabbit how to see the world from a different place ...From novelist and playwright Julian Gough, and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Jim Field, this is a tale of friendship, wisdom, and how to be REALLY NOISY.'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

Reviews

Fabulously funny... Jim Field's rich, glorious, colour illustrations work in perfect harmony with Julian Gough's text. * The Carousel *

A brilliant read for newly independent readers, but also a great read aloud: adults will enjoy it as much as listeners I suspect * Red Reading Hub *

Rabbit just wants a moment of peace -- will Bear be able to teach him to view the world from a new perspective? * Little London *

Julian Gough's tale of acceptance is like mindfulness for young readers and Jim Field's palette of greens makes it one of the most calming illustrated books you'll see this year * Belfast Telegraph *

An utterly seductive book * The Guardian *

Who could fail to love this gorgeously illustrated tale? * Sunday Business Post *

The Rabbit and Bear series ... goes from strength to strength with The Pest in the Nest, in which Spring has sprung and Rabbit is out of sorts with everyone, whether they're loud and happy or sad and slow. His belligerence ( I'm angry! And I want to be calm! So I'm angry that I'm angry! ) and Bear's wry, gentle responses are illuminated by Field's radiant palette of yellow-greens and greys, creating an utterly seductive book * The Guardian *

This is a laugh-out-loud, soon-to-be-your favourite story * Fallen Star Stories *

Full of humour - a real joy to read * Parents In Touch *

It's a lovely story about friendship...something which will get handed on to younger brothers and sisters (because it's a book for boys and girls) and probably onto the next generation. It's timeless....It could be a godsend for the child with dyslexia: the clear font makes it ideal for an emerging reader and the good quality paper means that there's no bleed-through from the reverse of the page which can distract a learner or someone suffering from dyslexia * The Bookbag *

A perfect animal double-act enchants. -- Alex O'Connell * The Times *

Rabbit's Bad Habits should become an instant modern classic. Stands shoulder to shoulder with Pooh and Toad. Cheeky, delightful and hilarious. * Eoin Colfer *
