Little Rabbit is running away from home…and finding his way back again.
One day, after Little Rabbit had been especially naughty, Mama and Papa give him a good scolding. “It’s not fair,” he cries. “I shall run away and live all by myself.” So Little Rabbit packs up a few of his belongings and leaves his family to build his very own house. But food tastes different away from home, and strange noises are louder. Soon Little Rabbit comes to realize that having your very own house is not the same as having a home with a family who loves you.
Harry Horse hits all the right notes in this gently humorous, ultimately reassuring story of a misunderstood young runaway asserting his independence. Young readers will identify easily with Little Rabbit and quietly cheer his triumphant return to the reassurance and safety of his home and family.
