The perfect recipe for bedtime! Six adorable rabbits are just one ingredient needed for sweet Rabbit Pie! Combine with a sprinkling of kisses and some warm milk for the ideal bedtime story. Told like a recipe, with delightful illustrations showing the preparations for bedtime, this charming picture book will enchant parents and children alike.
A mummy rabbit prepares a 'Rabbit Pie' for her little ones at bedtime with a creative blend of bunny ingredients: 'One game of hide-and-seek One bath Six pairs of pyjamas Six cups of milk One Story A sprinkling of soft kisses.' As the bunnies romp across the pages, Mummy gets them ready for bed. She then leaves them overnight in a soft warm place, ready to wake in the morning to a fresh carrot breakfast, which combined with the bedtime ingredients, makes sweet rabbit pie. Whilst young readers may be unused to the concept of recipes and ingredients, the message of loving preparations and fun is quite clear. Warm hues and lively characters are skilfully depicted while the action and comic antics displayed make up a great bedtime read. -- Jana Novotny Hunter Books for Keeps 20110301
