Lettice is a little rabbit with big dreams! As Lettice hops around on the hill with her family she sees a little bird flying overhead, swooping and looping and then soaring away. 'How wonderful it must be to fly,' Lettice thinks and from that moment she makes up her mind that somehow or other she will...She tries flapping her arms and even flapping her ears but no matter how hard she tries she can't lift off the ground. But then Lettice hears a whirring sound and she sees a small plane flying overhead. Lettice follows the plane until eventually she sees it land. It is just the right size for a small, plump rabbit and Lettice can't resist trying the little seat. Suddenly the plane makes a loud rumbling noise. It lurchs forward and jolts...up...up...up...into the sky...beginning the most exciting adventure of Lettice's life!

PreS. Lettice, who was a dancing rabbit in her first appearance, is now flying. Intrigued by birds, the little bunny tries to fly, but it's only after she accidentally climbs into a motorized toy plane that she gets a real bird's-eye view of the countryside. She has a close call when the little girl with the control box brings down the pink plane, and it's hard to say who is more surprised when the bunny and the child see one another. Lettice is worried that she won't get back to her family, but the girl has a solution: she flies the plane back to the spot where Lettice's family is having a picnic--much to the delight (and envy) of the other bunnies who are watching. This simple adventure is just right for the age group, as is the artwork, sweet and simple and executed in candy colors that immediately attract. Little ones will especially be drawn to the jacket picture of Lettice flying high in a pink plane, sprinkled with glitter. Ilene Cooper
