The Lovereading4Kids comment

Floppit the boingy bunny will win the hearts of young readers, who will identify completely with his boundless energy; they’ll laugh too at the exasperation and weariness shown by the various grown up animals he disturbs with his bouncing. Poor Cow is teaching her babies to walk for example, and Chicken is guarding her eggs. But when one of the eggs rolls away, only Floppit is speedy enough to catch it. It’s a lively, thoroughly enjoyable story made extra special by Anna Chernyshova’s illustrations which are full of detail, texture and humour – the expression on the little calf’s face alone is worth the cover price, while Floppit is a fluffy rabbit whirlwind. Exellent farmyard fun. ~ Andrea Reece


Catch That Egg! by Lucy Rowland

Floppit's farmyard friends have had enough of his enormous bunny feet. Stop that, Floppit! they sigh, every time he comes bouncing by. But his big clumsy feet might just save the day when Chicken's egg runs away . . . Help Floppit the big-footed bunny stop that egg in this fun farmyard egg chase.
