A brilliant read-aloud book for young readers who enjoy picture books but want more text on the page, from the creators of Crocodiles Are the Best Animals of All, which was shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2009 and is also now available in this Time to Read format.

Reviews

This is a great example of how text and illustration work together to maximum effect. Sean Taylor's text is emotive and rhythmical and Hannah Shaw's illustrations are whimsical, expressive and superbly detailed. Carousel

This traditional story is brought to life by both Hannah Shaw's wonderfully humourous illustrations and Sean Taylor's rhyming and fun to read aloud text. Young readers will relish with delight the great efforts made by the itzy-bitzy rabbit to avoid ending up as a snack for the bad-tempered and hungry Grizzly Bear with the Frizzly Hair! Bookfest Ireland - Recommended Reading Guide

This picture book has fantastic comic appeal as well as being full of drama and tension, with lovely rhyming text, making it perfect for early years reading and language development. Armadillo Magazine

A humourously illustrated picture book. Early Years Educator

Destined to become a read aloud favourite, as a wily rabbit attempts to avoid being eaten by a bloodthirsty bear. Children will love the banter and laugh-out loud moments. Bookseller
