The bunny that couldn't be found by Angela Mitchell (Illustrated by Sarah Horne)
Princess Lolly is beside herself when her pet dog, Johnny Bunny, goes missing. But there is a slight misunderstanding when Princess Lolly's staff start searching for a bunny rabbit...
A comical story about a hunt for a rabbit, which is actually ............. a dog!
The story is well written and helps children to understand that things are not always as they sound.It will raise a few laughs while the story is being told.
I really like the illustrations accompanying the story. They have a cartoon style feel and do not portray the princess as young and beautiful but as a princess who is slightly older. The policemen represent the multicultural make up of today's police force. Although the illustrations are sparsely drawn, they represent the story perfectly.
It is a good story which will amuse children, who are slightly older (4+).
Thank you to the publishers, Maverick Arts Publishing, for sending me the book to review.
