Rabbit and Bear: Book 3

Rabbit and Bear, like Claude, are perfect companions for building reading confidence and getting young children hooked into reading. Laugh aloud text and lively illustrations throughout. Gorgeously illustrated and with a classic feel, this is a brilliantly funny story of a rabbit and a bear who discover that things are always better when they're shared with a friend. Ideal for readers moving on from picture books.

Attack of the Snack Synopsis

SPLASH! A Mysterious Thing lands in Rabbit and Bear's peaceful summer lake. Is it exciting, or terrifying? Is it a tiny fluffy owl, or a huge hungry monster? And has Rabbit finally met a creature with worse habits than himself? Rabbit's SURE he can solve this mystery. But when he accidentally turns the Best Day Ever into the Worst Day Ever, he needs Bear's help ... From novelist and playwright Julian Gough, and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Jim Field, this is a tale of friendship, acceptance, and what you can do with blueberry poo.

Attack of the Snack Press Reviews

Rabbit's Bad Habits is a breath of fresh air in children's fiction, a laugh-out-loud story of rabbit and wolf and bear, of avalanches and snowmen. The sort of story that makes you want to send your children to bed early, so you can read it to them.  Neil Gaiman

When a lost baby owl fetches up in their forest, grouchy Rabbit, judicious Bear and their friends face a dilemma: lock up the newcomer or welcome his arrival? Beneath the bantering, the slapstick gags and the scatological humour there's a timely message about immigration and nationalism -- James Lovegrove - The Financial Times

These joyous stories of a very special friendship are perfect to enthuse newly confident readers to enjoy books on their own....Jim Field's wonderfully expressive illustrations are key to the success of the book....There's plenty of gentle humour to enjoy (including an unusual way to decorate the walls!) and the wonderful relationship between Rabbit and Bear goes from strength to strength - Parents in Touch

The Rabbit & Bear books are funny and sweet ... beautifully-illustrated with around 100 pages each, the language is straightforward, and readers may even pick up some facts about wildlife. - Mummy in the City

The latest in a series of neat little chapter books with funny pictures, poo jokes, a bear, a bigoted rabbit and life lessons. This one is a bout a tiny owl blown in from elsewhere, and how prejudice works. - The Sunday Times Ireland

When readers aged 8-10 stop giggling at the bird burps, musical farts and amazing uses for blueberry poo (eeuw!) they might also ponder the dangers of prejudice and benefits of acceptance that this witty little illuminates. - Evening Echo (Cork)

I like Rabbit & Bear - which could appeal to both boys and girls - because they are sweet, funny and beautifully illustrated books with around 100 pages. Clever and charming books for young readers! - Mummy In the City
