Those Pesky Rabbits by Ciara Flood (Templar Publishing)

Those Pesky Rabbits

Written and Illustrated by
Ciara Flood

Published by Templar Publishing

Mr Bear is not happy. For years he's lived a life of quiet contemplation (and slight grumpiness) out in the wilds, gathering honey and reading his vast book collection. Sounds blissful doesn't it? Only Mr Bear's life changes completely once "Those Pesky Rabbits" move in.

Aww but look at the little dears, they're utterly adorable!

"Those Pesky Rabbits" by Ciara Flood. Aren't they just gorgeous!
Bear has to get used to the rabbits constantly doing unreasonable things, like knocking on his door and bringing him presents, suggesting book swaps, or some fun in the snow. Bear has had just about enough of this frivolity and loses his temper.

Grumpy old bear!

Can those pesky (adorable) rabbits win him round? 

Ciara Flood's gorgeous story for Templar is such an entertaining read (even if Charlotte kept pointing out that I'm a bit like that bear at times. Owch!) Each glorious page spread is exquisitely detailed, and as we see Bear's frosty exterior melt due to the kindness of his new neighbours, we can't help but wish that bunch of bunnies would move in next door to us. Love 'em to bits!

Charlotte's best bit: Having spoonfuls of honey in tea? Sounds like it's worth a try!

Daddy's Favourite bit: Hugely entertaining and though we love grumpy old bear, the gorgeous rabbits definitely steal the show!
