Rabbits Don't Lay Eggs by Paula Metcalf and Cally Johnson-Isaacs (Macmillan Children's Books)

Rabbits Don't Lay Eggs!

Written by Paula Metcalf

Illustrated by Cally Johnson-Isaacs

Bunnies and eggs? Hang on a minute, I know it's nearly easter but you might be fooled a little by this cute little story, it's not an easter tale at all (though it'd make a perfect easter present if you don't want to overload your little ones with chocolate!)

Rupert the Rabbit is a little bit fed up with life in the burrow. He's a bit lonely and when he sees lots of animals having fun on a nearby farm, Rupert wants to join in himself.

A rather stern duck points out to Rupert that everyone on the farm has a role to play, and Rupert must find his own special skills in order to fit in - after all, a farm is no place for slackers!

Rupert comes up with a plan. Rabbits are experts at misappropriating the farmer's juicy vegetables, so Rupert soon wins the other animals over with his lapine thievery!

But the question all young children will want to answer is why rabbits don't lay eggs! We'll let you discover what happens in this tale when Rupert tries...!
