Little Grey Rabbit is a country Rabbit and she lives with the changes of the seasons and enjoys all the different celebrations throughout the year. In this treasury for all-year-round you will find eight classic tales that are perfect for every season. The treasury contains: Hare and the Easter Eggs, Little Grey Rabbit's May Day, Water Rat's Picnic, Little Grey Rabbit Goes to the Sea, Fuzzypeg goes to School, Little Grey Rabbit's Christmas.
This is a wonderful compendium of one of my childhood favourites, and I was over the moon to be able to review it. Yes I'm still convinced that Fuzzy-Peg feels like a girl rather than a boy. I adore how sweet, kind and caring Little Grey Rabbit is, how bouncy (and a bit like Tigger) and carried away Hare is with some very hare-brained ideas.
Squirrel is another character I like – hers and LGR's outfits are so cute! LGR looks out for every animal, being the voice of reason especially for Hare. It's nice how the stories included in this volume go through the seasons, which all have fun activities to try, and hurdles to face together. It's a perfect introduction to the world of Little Grey Rabbit if you've never entered it before, and a nostalgic read for those who already know and love the characters inside.
