JJ Rabbit and the Monster by Nicola Moon

Strange footprints have appeared outside JJ Rabbit's burrow - there must be a monster on the loose! Mole, Owl and Squirrel crowd into their friend's burrow until morning...Only Owl is brave enough to look when they all hear some strange sounds in the middle of the night and discovers the mysterious monster is Badger, making 'footprints' with his heavy bundle. In the second story, JJ, Mole and Squirrel set off in search of an adventure. They walk for miles past fields of corn and cows, have sticky encounters with a muddy river bank and finally get lost in the dark - until Owl arrives to lead them safely home.
