March 2020 Debut of the Month
Margarita Surnaite’s story can be read on different levels, but everyone will fall for her central character, Henry. Little Henry is the only one in his family, indeed in the whole of Rabbit Town, who doesn’t love books. Significantly though, it’s a book that leads him into an adventure. Finding a lost book, he tries to return it to its owner and arrives in a very different place – a big, grey city filled with busy grown-ups none of whom notice the little rabbit standing beside them. He makes friends with a little girl though, and they have lots of fun before Henry returns home, giving her the book as a parting gift. When she opens it that night, she finds the story it tells is hers and Henry’s, while he’s at home telling his family all about his adventure. An intriguing book about the power of stories, and the importance of keeping your eyes open, beautifully and sensitively illustrated.
Henry doesn't understand why everyone in Rabbit Town loves books, he much prefers real life adventures. That is, until he discovers the Lost Book. The Lost Book keeps him company, makes him feel less homesick and leads him on an exciting adventure with a new friend.
