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. It's March, and Hare is feeling as mad as only a March Hare can feel. So off he dashes into the village to see what he can find. There are untold delights -- jars of sweets, dolls, and wooden horses, but best of all, eggs made of chocolate with sugar flowers and ribbons tied round them. Hare decides to surprise his friends on Easter morning with these wonderful things! When he does, his cleverness is greatly admired -- but then Hare has always known just how clever he is! 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.
