The Lovereading4Kids comment
April 2012 Debut of the Month. Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2013.
Highly original, this is a stunning debut picture book which celebrates creativity and difference while also serving as a touching introduction to the idea that people leave good things behind them even when they are no longer around. Rabbit likes doing all kinds of obvious rabbity things like jumping, hopping, burrowing and sleeping. But he also likes un-rabbity things like painting and music. Rabbit fills the rabbit world with colour and sound; soon all rabbits are enjoying them too. Suddenly Rabbit disappears. Although the other rabbits search for him they find no trace. All they can find is what they need for making their own paintings and music. Even without Rabbit, his wonderful legacy lives on and changes rabbit life forever.
Rabbityness by Jo Empson
Debut picture book about a rabbit artist who vanishes, but lives on in his work.
When Rabbit suddenly disappears, no one knows where he has gone. His friends are desolate. But, as it turns out, Rabbit has left behind some very special gifts for them, to help them discover their own unrabbity talents! This is a stunning debut picture book by author/illustrator Jo Empson. Rabbityness celebrates individuality, encourages the creativity in everyone and positively introduces children to dealing with loss of any kind.
