Synopsis

Little Rabbit's Christmas by Harry Horse

Little Rabbit's Christmas is a wonderfully festive story by Harry Horse. Christmas is coming and all Little Rabbit wants is a shiny red sledge. When he wakes up on Christmas morning he isn't surprised that he can't find it in his stocking because that's a little small for a sledge. But when he cannot find it under the Christmas tree either, or stuck up the chimney, or under his parents' bed, he is heartbroken! I only wanted a sledge, he weeps, until Papa tells him to stop crying and look outside. And there it is - all shiny and red and new, just waiting for Little Rabbit to play on it. He feels very proud when his friends gather round to admire his wonderful present, but they want to play on it, too! Little Rabbit thinks that's not fair - it's his sledge and he's the only one allowed to ride it! What will make him learn to share? Harry Horse wrote and illustrated several highly acclaimed children's books -including The Last Polar Bears and The Last Gold Diggers, winner of the Smarties Prize Gold Medal in 1999. He also won the Smarties Prize Silver Medal for The Last Castaways in 2004. The heroine of this award-winning series was Horse's beloved mongrel dog, Roo, who died in 2006. In 2003 he won the Scottish Arts Council Children's Book Award for Little Rabbit Lost and this new character became the focus of his children's writing and illustrating across a series that was to number five titles, ending with Little Rabbit's Christmas. He was also well-known as a political cartoonist - for the New Yorker, the Guardian, Scotland on Sunday and The Scotsman. Most recently he produced a weekly cartoon for the Sunday Herald. Harry Horse lived with his wife Mandy on the Shetland island of Burra. Richard Horne (Harry Horse), writer, illustrator and cartoonist: born Coventry 9 May 1960; died Papil, Shetland c 10 January 2007.
