The Lovereading4Kids comment
Packed full of Christmassy warmth, this busy story about Little Grey Rabbit and her friends Hare and Squirrel is a welcome reissue of a delightful classic. All three have fun sledging with their friends in the snow until Hare scares himself sledging in the moonlight with a dark stranger…Their friend Mouldy Warp creates a magical Christmas tree for all the birds and beast of the wood and even Rat does a very kind thing for Christmas.
Little Grey Rabbit's Christmas by Alison Uttley
Since publication of the first Little Grey Rabbit book in 1929, the series has become a classic of children's literature. The popularity of Alison Uttley's magical stories and Margaret Tempest's lively illustrations meant that generations of children grew up with Grey Rabbit, Squirrel, Hare, Moldy Warp and little Fuzzypeg. Now Templar brings the story of Little Grey Rabbit's Christmas to today's young readers - join the festivities as the animals prepare for a truly special Christmas as Little Grey Rabbit goes to market to buy her friends a secret gift - a fine scarlet sledge!
'Its lovely to see these children's classics brought to a new generation with bright, eye-catching covers, which still feature the original illustrations by Margaret Tempest. The characters are beautifully portrayed and everyone will have their favourite. The pace of the stories is gentle and they make perfect bedtime reading. Collect the series (Templar are reissuing the first four) and they will become family favourites. I still have a collection bought when my children were little.'
'This newly published festive book will delight.'
'This neat little hardback edition of the classic story would itself make a lovely gift. It is full of old-fashioned charm and pictures of the kind of Christmas one would like to believe might once have existed.'
