What the Critics Said
“This is a classic… a spectacular new edition.”
“The first in a series of very special Nosy Crow classics with the original unabridged text, beautifully produced in hardback with foiled cloth binding.”
“Some stories defy time and place… and this is another picture book that I think we’ll be keeping forever.”
“This beautiful hardback book from Nosy Crow comes with glorious illustrations by Sarah Massini, and is cloth-bound with a foiled cover; it will make a perfect gift – a classic story, superbly produced to treasure.”
“This new, lavishly produced and illustrated version, printed on touchy-feely Munken paper and with a fully-foiled cloth binding and ribbon marker, is just the first book in a new classic series from Nosy Crow children’s publishers. And young readers will be enchanted not just by the story of Rabbit and his friends but by the heartwarming illustrations of the very talented Sarah Massini whose gorgeous gallery of colourful pictures has a warm, nostalgic feel, with each character perfectly portrayed and with all the charm and atmosphere of the original book uncompromised.”
“I read this story with my mummy at bedtime.
The story is happy because the rabbit is loved so much but also sad because the boy gets really ill.
I really enjoyed the book and it had lovely pictures in it to look at.
I would read this story again.”
