From renowned children’s author Polly Faber and Stardust illustrator Briony May Smith comes an exciting and gorgeous new picture book that features a Peter Rabbit for the 21st century…

Hodge, an adorable bunny, is minding his own business… well, he’s stealing some carrots from Mrs Sprat’s garden, actually… when he ends up stuck in the hedge. Mrs Sprat advances, wanting to get rid of the pesky bunny, and a buzzard overheard spies a tasty rabbit dinner, too. Can Hodge escape from bird of prey and angry gardener in time to take the carrots home? 

The lyrical story, by Polly Faber, is perfect for reading aloud and packed with page-turning suspense. Illustrated by Briony May Smith, each page is full of detailed visual delights.

A beautiful tale about kindness and forgiveness, packed with adventure and peril. 


As well as being the author of renowned children’s series Mango and Bambang, Polly Faber is a children’s book blogger and volunteer reading helper through the charity Beanstalk. With her family, she looks after her very own tiny free library outside their house in North London.

"***** This bunny is for life, not just for Easter… A feel-good bunny story whose appeal will far outlast the Easter weekend… Beautifully, simply told with languid illustrations by Briony May Smith that complement the suspenseful plot."


"I’ll begin with the illustrations as they are simply gorgeous! … The writing is equally as beautiful. … The narrative develops into a truly heartwarming tale that can’t fail to melt the most hardened of hearts. This story is a fantastic collaboration between Polly Faber and Briony May Smith and if either of you are listening, we at Bitsy Bookworms would love a sequel!"
