The Lovereading4Kids comment

A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.

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 Monk’s sparkling and tactile illustrations make a great accompaniment.

Synopsis

The Rhyming Rabbit by Julia Donaldson

Poor old Rhyming Rabbit is feeling lonely and left out. None of his fellow rabbits appreciate his carefully thought-out poems. And as for the other woodland animals? They just tell him to be quiet! Then one starry night he meets someone who shares his enthusiasm for poetry ...Follow the Rhyming Rabbit through fields, woods and dark tunnels on his quest to find a friend in this delightful story from a bestselling duo.
