Gorgeously illustrated and with a classic feel, this is a brilliantly funny story of a rabbit and a bear who discover that things are always better when they're shared with a friend. Ideal for readers moving on from picture books. 'A perfect animal double-act.' (The Times, Book of the Week) 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. But with an avalanche and a hungry wolf heading his way, Rabbit soon realises that it might be nice to have a friend on his side. From novelist and playwright Julian Gough, and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Jim Field, this is 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 *Shortlisted for the Children's Book of the Year in the Irish Book Awards*
ERICA JEWELL IS BACK . . . Erica Jewell has a bossy cat, an annoying mother and a secret job. And with that job comes a mysterious lover who's taken off on some unspecified dangerous mission. Erica reckons that's pretty typical of Jack Jones - he'd rather risk his life than his heart. Then Erica discovers with a shock that Jack is M.I.A. in tropical Saint Sebastian. When no one seems willing to help find Jack, or even acknowledge his existence, Erica knows she's his only chance. But negotiating her way around sweltering Sebastian - with its lawlessness, impenetrable jungle and unruly inhabitants - proves much more difficult than expected. . . Fast-paced, funny and totally engaging, Monkey Business blends action and romance in an irresistible summer read. Praise for Kathry Ledson's Rough Diamond 'Fans of Stephanie Plum rejoice. There's a new undercover angel in town.' Marie Claire 'Blends romantic escapism and adventure. Ledson captivates with characters that are memorable and real and refreshingly Australian. Reading her novel is akin to chatting to a very likeable friend.' West Australian 'Funny and thrilling' Cleo 'Delightfully funny, light-hearted and fast-paced ...
