Ready! Said Rabbit

Marjoke HenrichsClick here for biography

Rabbit and his dad are going to the park, but will they ever be ready to leave the house?

Everyone has experienced the planning of a trip, everyone has got side-tracked while getting ready, and finally everybody has reached the stage of panic as they can’t find their glasses or house keys!

Rabbit and his dad go through all the above and more in this tender and humorous family comedy, where each has to be patient and tolerant with the other, and finally both are ready for fun!


Praise for this book:

'This funny picture book is sure to strike a chord with any adult who has experienced similar delays when attempting to leave the house…The sketchy, colourful illustrations are full of movement and humour, and present an alternative, visual narrative, which injects further humour and adds an extra layer of meaning to the entertaining tale.' Booktrust

'Henrichs again perfectly depicts the joyful chaos and confusion that make up so much of a toddler's life, alongside the delight they find in the simplest of things, and her representation of the adult-child relationship is also beautifully observed and tender... another perfect book for the very young.' Books For Keeps

'With punchy illustrations, big text on large pages, and clever inferential plot cues, this text is spot on to read aloud.' School Reading List

'Young children will love sharing this story with their families. Exclamations of “Ready!” will ring out as they giggle at Rabbit’s antics and the situations that are so similar to their own lives.' Scope For The Imagination
