The fourth in a funny new series from former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen and rising star Robert Starling.
This bunny is wriggly. They wriggle round and round, they wriggle on the ground, they wave their feet and drum out a beat … they just can’t stop! This playful book captures the excitable energy of a child who just can’t sit still, joyfully moving from the familiar to the absurd – until they finally run out of steam. An exuberant read-aloud from master of rhyme Michael Rosen, coupled with bold and bouncing illustrations from Robert Starling, perfect for sharing with little ones.


Michael Rosen is one of the most popular authors for children; his bestselling titles published by Walker Books include We're Going on a Bear Hunt, A Great Big Cuddle and Michael Rosen’s Sad Book. A popular radio broadcaster, distinguished critic and academic, and multi-award-winning poet, Michael was appointed the Children's Laureate from 2007 to 2009, and is now Professor of Children's Literature at Goldsmiths, University of London. His recently published picture book, Michael Rosen's Sticky McStickstick, told the story of his recovery from Covid-19.
Robert Starling is a children's book author and illustrator, a former primary school teacher and a star on the rise. His bestselling debut, Fergal is Fuming, was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Award; this was followed by Fergal in a Fix! and Super Sloth, after which Robert joined forces with author Smriti Prasadam-Halls on The Little Island, a timely political fable.


The exuberance of the text and movement in the illustrations will appeal to all those kids who cannot sit still and those who would live to be spontaneous. The infectious words will be said over and over again, children trying them out, working out what they mean, enjoying the humour in their depiction by Robert Starling.


This is a bright and charming picture book featuring a lovable bunny as its central character and would make any child reader smile. Dig Deeper and the reader can see it is a celebration of language… A wonderful picture book to be shared and shared again.
