Little Grey Rabbit is one of the classic gems of children's literature. The series is being relaunched to tie in with a classic television adaptation, and will delight children as much today as when it was first published seventy years ago. Little Grey Rabbit lives with Squirrel and Hare in a little house on the edge of a wood. One day, Moldy Warp the Mole finds a tiny piece of stone with a golden eye painted on it. He loves nothing more than a good treasure hunt, so off he sets to find the rest of the stone picture it must come from. Along the way he is joined by all his woodland friends. They wait for him in a meadow, while Moldy Warp digs deep below the ground. He finds Badger's secret home -- and a treasure trove! AGE 4-8

Alison Uttley was born in 1884 in Derbyshire. She wrote about her characters, "Why do children love them? Because I believe in them." And it is easy to imagine that just over the next hill, little Grey Rabbit, quick Squirrel, bold Hare, kind Moldy Warp and little Fuzzypeg really are all going about their business. Margaret Tempest illustrated the very first Little Grey Rabbit story and her partnership with Alison Uttley continued successfully over the next forty years. Her beautiful, witty watercolours are as much loved and remembered today as when the stories were first published.
