Synopsis

Rabbits Don't Lay Eggs! by Paula Metcalf

Rabbits don't belong in the farmyard. So it creates quite a stir when Rupert the rabbit 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 disaster! Luckily Rupert is good at digging, which soon leads to the most unexpected farm job of all . . . Rabbits Don't Lay Eggs! from Paula Metcalf and Cally Johnson-Isaacs, the creators of Charlie Crow in the Snow, is an egg-ceedingly funny farmyard caper. A chunky board book with a glittery cover, this is the perfect book for an Easter gift - or any time of the year!

Reviews

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 * 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 *
