About this title


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 dark and windy night, Owl shuts all his windows carefully before flying out. But later that night, a storm whirls through the wood, and poor Owl's tree is blown down. When little Grey Rabbit hears about it, she decides to find Owl a new house, with Squirrel and Hare's help. But while they are out looking, Owl finds the perfect place himself -- their woodshed. Now what are they going to do? AGE 4-8 and adult fans

About the Author:

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.
