A little bunny keeps running away from his mother in an imaginative and imaginary game of verbal hide-and-seek; children will be profoundly comforted by this lovingly steadfast mother who finds her child every time.
The Runaway Bunny, first published in 1942 and never out of print, has indeed become a classic.
Generations of readers have fallen in love with the gentle magic of its reassuring words and loving pictures.
In this universal story, a child tests the limits of independence and comfortingly learns that a parent's love is unconditional and everlasting.
The story is made all the more captivating by its unusual Arctic setting.
The lyrical text introduces young readers to a distinctively different culture, while at the same time showing that the special love that exists between parent and child transcends all boundaries of time and place.
Lisa McCourt and Cyd Moore beautifully weave a reassuring tale of the love and affection of a parent.
The imaginative son turns himself into a meat-eating dinosaur, a swamp creature and much, much more before being satisfied with the fact that no matter how stinky he is or how slimy of a creature he could possibly be, he is loved and nothing will change that.
Perfect for fans of The Runaway Bunny, this children's bedtime story is filled with baby animals and their mothers: an otter tucks her little one into a kelp forest bed; a family of brown bears snuggle all through the winter; a bowhead whale sings a song to soothe her calf.
