Mia finds her little brother Jim really irritating. He follows her round, takes her things, embarrasses her in front of her friends. Then, during an argument, she accidentally throws his much-loved toy Rabbit onto the roof. Upset and guilty, Mia runs off to hide, not noticing that she’s been followed by two colourful, cheeky, and very friendly little creatures. She names them Miffkins and discovers Jim has been found by one too. Together, the Miffkins help rescue Rabbit, but more than that, they bring sister and brother together again. The story is very appealing, the Miffkins are very sweet indeed, and the message is delivered subtly and with real charm. A lovely book for families to share.
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.
