What Noise Does a Rabbit Make?

Author: Carrie Weston Illustrator: Richard Byrne Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 06/03/2014

As the sun came up - COCK-A-DOODLE-DO! - trumpeted the cockerel, and then all at once the farm rang out with the noises of the other animals. Amid the ruckus, Raggety-Taggle quietly nibbled the grass and wondered just what noise does a rabbit make? A great, rumbustuous animal noises book to read aloud to small children.

Boris Starts School

Boris Starts School

Author: Carrie Weston Illustrator: Tim Warnes Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/07/2012

When Miss Cluck tells her little pupils that there is going to be a new animal in their class, they are all very excited. In fact, there are squeals of delight. Nobody expects the new animal to be a grizzly bear! So, when a rather bashful Boris enters the room, Leticia the rabbit, Fergus the fox cub, Maxwell the mole, and the little mice . . . scream! Boris is upset. He doesn't mean to be scary. He just wants to make friends. But he spends a lonely, miserable first day at school, he's just too big to fit in. When it's home time, Boris trudges through the woods, far behind the others. After all, it seems to him that none of them wants to be his friend. Then he sees some rats up ahead as they jump out from behind the trees. Boris hurries along to introduce himself (ever hopeful of making new friends) but, once again, his big bear grin terrifies the rats. However, to his astonishment, in scaring off the bullies Boris has truly endeared himself to Maxwell, Leticia, Fergus and the mice. A beautifully-observed story with a positive message about friendship and acceptance.

Oh, Boris!

Author: Carrie Weston Illustrator: Tim Warnes Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/10/2007

On the day that Miss Cluck says there is going to be a new animal in the class, everyone is very excited. In fact, there are squeals of delight. Nobody expects the new animal to be a bear. So when Boris takes his first hairy, scary, grizzly steps into the classroom, Leticia the rabbit, Fergus the fox cub, Maxwell the mole, and the little mice...scream! Of course, Boris doesn't mean to be scary. He only wants to make friends. But he spends a lonely, miserable first day at school. When it's home time, Boris trudges through the woods, far behind the others. After all, it seems to him that none of them wants to be his friend. Then he sees some rats up ahead as they jump out from behind the trees. Boris hurries along to introduce himself (ever hopeful of making new friends) but, once again, his ursine enthusiasm terrifies the rats. However, to his astonishment, in scaring off the bullies Boris has truly endeared himself to Maxwell, Leticia, Fergus and the mice. Boris is a gentle giant and he immediately wins our affections. How Boris is perceived by his classmates and how those perceptions change as the story unfolds give this picture book real resonance for children everywhere who have experienced being new among an unfamiliar group.
