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
