More delightful small-scale fun and big adventure in this new story starring toy rabbit family the Twitches and their owner, Stevie. Two stories run parallel: Stevie and her mum are having a party to get to know their new neighbours and have baked a cake. Steve is feeling a mixture of excitement and trepidation, worried about meeting new people and anxious that she won’t make any new friends. Meanwhile, the two youngest Twitches Silver and Fig, are cheekily making a cake of their own. The two stories converge, and by the end Stevie are her new friend Eshe are playing happily with the Twitches – and wondering why they are smeared with icing! The story provides excitement and reassurance alike, showing youngsters that change can be good. The Twitches are charming little characters and Pippa Curnick’s illustrations are very appealing.
Stevie's mum is having a party, so she's baked a delicious cake for all the guests. Stevie's tiny toy rabbits, Silver and Fig Twitch, would love a taste of its yummy purple icing. How will they get their paws on some? It's time for an adventure outside the Teacup House!
“A lovely balance of plot, contemporary interest, humour and sweetness. [...] I will be wholeheartedly recommending this little series as it develops to young readers - and their grownups.” Book Worm Mum (Blogger)

Hayley has always loved stories. She grew up near Watership Down, and one of her favourite things to do was visit the big hill to watch the rabbits hopping in and out of their burrows. She's always loved really small things too. When she was little she used to make tiny furniture for fairy houses, setting them out in scooped out hollows in her back garden. To this day she's sure the fairies used them... Hayley lives in Norfolk. Teacup House is her debut series for young readers.More About Hayley Scott
