Lavender by Posy Simmonds


Lavender by Posy Simmonds

Whenever there is the slightest hint of danger, Lavender the rabbit can be found with her friends the goose and the hens clucking with concern. So when a group of tourist town foxes arrive on their very first visit to the countryside, Lavender is very wary indeed, even though the town foxes think that the idea of eating rabbits is just sick. When the town foxes invite the rabbits to a party, Lavender has no intention of going until her fellow rabbits tease her for being chicken. Incensed, Lavender joins the group and even perseveres when the others decide that the situation has become a bit scary. What happens next, as the town foxes come face to face with their hungry country cousins, ensures that Lavender returns home a heroine!


Every page of this wonderful picture book is full of humour and page-turning tension ... The illustrations are delicate and very detailed making this a picture book to be shared and explored Inis 20041101
