Meet Rabbit, the international sensation, on a brand-new book adventure!
What goes up must come down! Hold your breath as the adventurous but accident-prone Rabbit discovers the Uh-oh! in see-sawing, swimming, skiing and speeding down slides! There's fun to be had in both the highs and the lows in Rabbit's carefree world.
Rabbit celebrates the magic of everyday life and has been spotted everywhere from the Centre Pompidou in Paris to the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. Rabbit can also be found on ceramics, textiles, prints and nursery decorations that are favourites in homes all around the world.
Jo Ham is an award-winning British illustrator, artist and designer. She is also the founder of HAM and creator of Rabbit, whose joyful adventures have been spotted everywhere from the Centre Pompidou in Paris to the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. HAM’s playful illustrations can be found on ceramics, prints and nursery decorations that are favourites in homes all around the world.
Jo's first picture books, Yippee! Rabbit and Uh-Oh! Rabbit, will be published this September by the Walker Books Group. The next book in the series will launch in early 2024.
The stunning black and white illustrations are augmented with a spot of yellow, giving an intriguing highlight on some pages, while the ‘Uh-oh’ is always on a yellow page, contrasting with the black and white pages. The endpapers add another level of interest which young readers will love, scanning their eyes over the things they have read about but seeing a few more things that Rabbit tries out with similar disastrous endings. A very funny book for the young toddler, strongly constructed and with thicker pages for them to look at time and time again, and offering a starter for talks about keeping yourself safe.
The Rabbit series is perfect for toddlers and would make a great gift for new babies. Highly recommended.
Kids Book Review
Uh-Oh! Rabbit & Yippee! Rabbit are fun, playful and perfect for very young ones. Two separate days of adventurous pursuits and exhilarating endeavours introduce the concepts of stop and go and up and down through the most joyous artwork and delightful phrasing. Rabbit’s escapades also offer great starting points for conversations around cause and effect and actions and consequences.
