"It's the end of the world," said a gloomy voice.
Bear looked all around. "No it isn't," said Bear cautiously. "It's a lovely sunny day."

In this laugh-out-loud funny story, a rabbit and bear discover that things are always better when they're shared with a friend.

Bear wakes up early from hibernation. If she can't sleep, then at least she can make a snowman.

Rabbit has never made a snowman, but he definitely wants to make one that's better than Bear's.

However, with an avalanche and a hungry wolf heading his way, Rabbit soon realises that it might be nice to have a friend on your side. Especially when it comes to building snowmen.

A tale of friendship, gravity, and just a little bit of poo.

'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

This book is the first in a brand new series.

Julian Gough is a novelist and playwright who regularly writes for The Guardian. His previous works include Juno & Juliet.  Illustrator Jim Field was the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and is the illstrator of the bestselling younger children's title Oi Frog.
