Rabbits Don't Lay Eggs! by Paula Metcalf


Rabbits Don't Lay Eggs! by Paula Metcalf

Rabbits don't belong in the farmyard. So it creates quite a stir when Rupert pops up. He tries to make himself useful, but he can't cock-a-doodle-do like Cockerel, and when he tries to lay an egg like Dora the duck, it's a diaster! Luckily Rupert is good at digging, which soon leads to the most unexpected farm job of all ...A funny farmyard caper from the creators of CHARLIE CROW IN THE SNOW (978-0-230-76035-6). Perfect book for an Easter gift -- or any time of the year.


Little ones will adore the enchanting Rupert and his raucous farmyard friends while the eye-catching illustrations will have them frowning and laughing in quick succession. Lancashire Evening Post Young audiences will love Rupert's misunderstandings [and] they'll relish the visual treats supplied by the bold, bright pictures of Cally Johnson-Isaacs whose scenes, be they full spread or smaller vignette style, are both funny and full of charm. jillrbennett.wordpress.com

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
