Synopsis

Two of the world's most celebrated picture book creators, Julia Donaldson and Helen Oxenbury, team up for the first time in this jaunty animal fable for fans of Room on the Broom and We're Going on a Bear Hunt.

Rabbit arrives home one day to hear a loud voice coming from inside his burrow:
