Gorgeously illustrated and with a classic feel, this is a brilliantly funny story of a rabbit and a bear whose friendship is tested by a very noisy woodpecker ... Ideal for readers moving on from picture books.

'A perfect animal double-act.' (The Times, Book of the Week)

'PEACE AND QUIET,' shouts Rabbit. 'THAT'S ALL I WANT.'

Owch. He's hurt his own ears again.

What with Bear's snoring, and a BANG!BANG!BANG! noise from up in the tree, Rabbit knows that Something Simply Has To Be Done.

But high in the branches, perhaps Bear can show Rabbit how to see the world from a different place ...

From novelist and playwright Julian Gough, and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Jim Field, this is a tale of friendship, wisdom, and how to be REALLY NOISY.

'Rabbit's Bad Habits is a breath of fresh air in children's fiction, a laugh-out-loud story of rabbit and wolf and bear, of avalanches and snowmen. The sort of story that makes you want to send your children to bed early, so you can read it to them.' Neil Gaiman

MEDIA REVIEWS
Rabbit's Bad Habits should become an instant modern classic. Stands shoulder to shoulder with Pooh and Toad. Cheeky, delightful and hilarious. * Eoin Colfer *
A perfect animal double-act enchants. -- Alex O'Connell * The Times *
It's a lovely story about friendship...something which will get handed on to younger brothers and sisters (because it's a book for boys and girls) and probably onto the next generation. It's timeless....It could be a godsend for the child with dyslexia: the clear font makes it ideal for an emerging reader and the good quality paper means that there's no bleed-through from the reverse of the page which can distract a learner or someone suffering from dyslexia * The Bookbag *
Full of humour - a real joy to read * Parents In Touch *
This is a laugh-out-loud, soon-to-be-your favourite story * Fallen Star Stories *
The Rabbit and Bear series ... goes from strength to strength with The Pest in the Nest, in which Spring has sprung and Rabbit is out of sorts with everyone, whether they're loud and happy or sad and slow. His belligerence ("I'm angry! And I want to be calm!" So I'm angry that I'm angry!") and Bear's wry, gentle responses are illuminated by Field's radiant palette of yellow-greens and greys, creating an utterly seductive book * The Guardian *
Who could fail to love this gorgeously illustrated tale? * Sunday Business Post *
An utterly seductive book * The Guardian *
Julian Gough's tale of acceptance is like mindfulness for young readers and Jim Field's palette of greens makes it one of the most calming illustrated books you'll see this year * Belfast Telegraph *
Rabbit just wants a moment of peace -- will Bear be able to teach him to view the world from a new perspective? * Little London *
A brilliant read for newly independent readers, but also a great read aloud: adults will enjoy it as much as listeners I suspect * Red Reading Hub *
This is an ideal series for children progressing from picture books - there are plenty of illustrations to accompany satisfying storylines. The chunky hardback book has a classic feel and the story of friendship is one to return to over and over again. * Parents in Touch *
Fabulously funny... Jim Field's rich, glorious, colour illustrations work in perfect harmony with Julian Gough's text. * The Carousel *
