Rabbit Pie by Penny Ives (Child's Play)

As the subtitle says "The Perfect Recipe for Bedtime" though these adorable little bunnies won't be tucked up under a blanket of pastry, thankfully.

In "Rabbit Pie", the lovely tale unfolds like a favourite recipe as we follow six busy little bunnies on their way to a good night's sleep. Add in some carrots, perhaps a mug or two of hot milk and you'll soon have your own little bunnies snoring softly and sleeping soundly too.

Penny Ives' book has recently been updated with a new cover and the new board-book format, which means it's absolutely perfect for your little ones if they're still at that stage of tasting books rather than reading them.

Know what though? It's also good for your slightly bigger bunnies too. Charlotte's favourite 'cute' animals are nearly always bunnies, so this book won her over. Sublime artwork, deliciously wrapped up with fun recipe-like instructions, who could possibly resist a wonderful slice of rabbit pie?

Charlotte's best bit: So many 'ooohs' and 'ahhhs' at the various cute (and sometimes quite mischievous) antics of the little bunnies in this book.

Daddy's favourite bit: A lovely little update of a Child's Play favourite. Kids from Toddler to Texter will love it to bits.
