The Rhyming Rabbit 10th Anniversary Edition
Illustrated by Lydia MonksAges 3-5
Celebrate ten years of rhyming fun with this special anniversary edition of The Rhyming Rabbit from the brilliant partnership of Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks - the bestselling team behind the What the Ladybird Heard adventures.
Featuring previously unseen artwork from illustrator Lydia Monks and a special letter from author Julia Donaldson, this celebratory edition with its shiny foiled cover is a perfect gift. And with brilliant rhyming verse and bright and distinctive illustrations, the story is as delightful to read aloud as ever.
The Rhyming Rabbit loves to make up entertaining poems, inspired by everything he sees, but the other rabbits don’t appreciate his talent for rhyme. Sad and lonely, the Rhyming Rabbit sets off one starry night all on his own – will he ever find someone to share his poems with?
Enjoy more stories from Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks: Sharing a Shell, The Princess and the Wizard, The Singing Mermaid, Sugarlump and the Unicorn and the What the Ladybird Heard series.
A delightful dottiness which is just as captivating [as The Gruffalo].
Most children love rhyming, and even those who don’t will enjoy The Rhyming Rabbit… a strong narrative with universal themes.
Donaldson’s unrivaled way with words is showcased to perfection as our lyrical rabbit spurts out poem after poem. Lydia Monks’ vibrant artwork supports this beautifully, using bright colours and collage.
