No Said Rabbit

Marjoke HenrichsClick here for biography

An everyday battle of wills between a mother and child where everyone ends up a winner!

Rabbit is happy doing his own thing, and he doesn't want to listen to his mum telling him to get up, get dressed, have breakfast, play outside, come inside and least of all... have a bath! NO, NO, NO! he says. But at last they hit on something they both love doing together.

Praise for this book:

'Ideal for toddlers and preschoolers, Marjoke Henrichs' picture book will be very familiar to parents of little ones who have just discovered “no” and like to use it at every opportunity.' BOOK TRUST

'The anarchic tale of a rabbit who does not like being told what to do. 'No, no, no, no!' cries rabbit until finally his mother makes him an offer he can't refuse.' THE OLDIE

'This wonderfully illustrated debut picturebook is a celebration of play, family and love.' JUST IMAGINE

'The register of writing, the journey through the familiar events of the day and the chunky crayoned illustrations are perfectly attuned to the sensibilities of a two-to-three-year-old. I'm sure it will prove to be a frequently demanded pleasure in our house for some months to come.' SCHOOL READING LIST

'Pitching a picture book at the very youngest is not easy. Tone, setting, language and the visual impact all have to be right. They do not have to be simplistic nor necessarily brightly coloured. In this her debut picture book, Marjoke Henrichs strikes all the right notes... This is a picture book that really does work.' Books for Keeps, Book of the Month

'With its delightful irony, Marjoke Henrichs' debut picture book is pitch perfect for sharing with preschoolers. The story's structure cleverly offers an important reading lesson - that of prediction - and as they view the unfolding action in Marjoke's chucklesome scenes, little ones will delight in chorusing NO! along with the protagonist at every opportunity.' Red Reading Hub

'Henrichs brings a winning brand of ironic humour to both her words and a gallery of lively and gorgeously colourful illustrations in this sparkling debut picture book... This cleverly empathetic tale of tears and tantrums comes loaded with charm, drama… and lots of love.' Lancashire Evening Post

'A thoroughly delightful, warmhearted bedtime story.' Kirkus, starred review
