This book was first published in 1942 and is a classic picture book. HarperCollins have made it available as part of their Essential Picture Book Classics.
In a lot of ways, this reminds me of ‘Guess How Much I Love You’ – which of course came many years later – but the themes are similar and are full of love (and rabbits).
The Runaway Bunny thinks about running away, but his mother has other ideas – but in a positive way. Bunny will be a boat, mother will be the wind that blows him home, for example.
H loved looking at the illustrations and enjoyed reading it – and it has a good loving message too.
Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown (and pictures by Clement Hurd) is published by HarperCollins Children’s Books in paperback and eBook formats.
