It is a perfect day for doing nothing. But Percy's peaceful picnic is disturbed when a little rabbit meets with a nasty tumble into an old well. All the animals gather together with a huge rope to help pull the rabbit out. But all they tug from the well is the branch of a tree. But the rabbit has already found her own way out—through a passage under the ground ,and she's at the end of the line with the other animals lending a hand!

About the Author:

Nick Butterworth is the author and illustrator of many children's books, including All Together Now!, Amanda's Butterfly, Jingle Bells, Q Pootle 5Q Pootle 5 in Space, and Thud!

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-Special, sweet, and funny, this book will delight young children. Percy the park keeper spends his day off relaxing with his animal friends. The first illustration depicts the man lounging against an old tree trunk, chewing on a long stem of grass; his anthropomorphized friends recline in identical positions. Everything is fine until a jumping game gets out of hand and a young rabbit falls into an abandoned well. Percy rushes to help, throwing her a long rope and instructing her to tie it tight. Not understanding what she is supposed to do, she ties it to the log she's sitting on and proceeds to find her own way out. The man and his helpers strain and pull until finally out pops the log-but no bunny. The following page folds out and out again, revealing a long line of befuddled animals-and a little rabbit holding onto the end. This fold-out page is clever but will not hold up well in a library. The bright watercolor illustrations depict the likable and humorous characters perfectly. A great read-aloud.
