Brown Rabbit in the City by Natalie Russell

Brown Rabbit in the City

A copy of this book was sitting in the Forest Cafe Free Shop during the week while I was Poet Laureate there. I read this book a couple of times and it inspired me to write a story about rabbits exploring the free shop.

Brown Rabbit in the City is a beautifully illustrated book about a brown rabbit who goes to the city to see his friend Little Rabbit. Little Rabbit is very excited by the visit and rushes Brown Rabbit round her favourite cafes, museums, galleries and shops. Poor Brown Rabbit is overwhelmed and exhausted by all the rushing around, after all he's a country bunny and his only reason for visiting the city is to spend time with his friend! Will Little Rabbit ever slow down and spend time with him?

This is a lovely book about friendship and enjoying life at a slower pace.

I love rabbit stories, there are many lovely ones. This sounds fun, as well.

__ Not knowing of that book, Juliet, I offer from its title that which my imagination has felt, we all may know that feeling.
__ Away... from the warm of calm; city sounds are not the tree's song.

in din and clamor
far from the forest tree songs
this cold city's drum
