The Rhyming Rabbit
Illustrated by Lydia MonksBaby and toddler
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?
The Rhyming Rabbit is a clever rhyming adventure from the stellar picture book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks, creators of What the Ladybird Heard. With brilliant rhyming verse, bright and distinctive illustrations and a gorgeously glittery cover, this story is a delight to read aloud.
Enjoy all the stories from Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks: Sharing a Shell, The Princess and the Wizard, The Rhyming Rabbit, The Singing Mermaid, Sugarlump and the Unicorn, Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox, What the Ladybird Heard, What the Ladybird Heard Next, What the Ladybird Heard on Holiday and The Girl, the Bear and the Magic Shoes.
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 . . .
