Little Grey Rabbit: Rabbit and the Weasels by Alison Uttley, aint Margaret Mary

Down in the dell, behind a curtain of foxgloves, lives a family of crafty weasels. They steal from all the little animals as they walk by; Speckledy Hen's eggs, Moldy Warp's axe... One day, as Little Grey Rabbit bravely hurries past the weasels' haunt, they jump out and snatch her away. We've been waiting for you, the weasels say, we want somebody to bake and wash and clean. Now it is up to her woodland friends to save Little Grey Rabbit and finally teach those weasels a lesson!

About the Author

The Alison Uttley Literary Property Trust and the Trustees of the Estate of the Late Margaret Mary Mears (Author) Alison Uttley (1884-1976) said of her characters, Why do children love them? Because I believe in them. She grew up at Castle Top Farm in Derbyshire, and her passion for the countryside comes across vividly in her timeless Little Grey Rabbit stories. Margaret Tempest (Illustrator) (1892-1982) illustrated these classic tales with such vitality that the characters come to life with warmth and wit. Her partnership with Alison Uttley lasted for forty years.
