Book Description

25 Oct 1982
The world seems a cold place to Harold, a very overgrown rabbit, until he finds his niche as a champion trotter. "The rhyming couplets which describe his career flow with easy nonsense, accompanied by four-color lithograph-effect drawings of swift action and humorous detail." -- Horn Book

My grandmother bought me a signed copy of Huge Harold about 23years ago. I unfortunately lost that copy but have been looking for a copy for my children. Bill Peet is a wonderful author.

Even at 21, Bill Peet is my favorite author. I truely wish he was more popular so that his books would be more available. Move over Good Night Moon for this adorable rabbit and the goodness of just one man.

5.0 out of 5 stars huge harold by bill peet 5 April 2011
By dewdrop
Format:School & Library Binding
This has to be one of the best childrens books ever written. We had it for our children who all have their own well read, stuck together with sellotape copies and now have a fresh new copy for the granddaughter. What a delight to see it was still available to buy. I can't recommend this book enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huge Harold - I've Found You! 19 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I am a 41 year old mother of three - when I was a child my mother used to read this book to me MANY times a day. It was by far my all time favorite. My mother passed away not quite a year ago and I thought I would surely find the book when we went through her house - it was nowhere to be found. She probably destroyed it because I'm certain she was very sick of reading it time after time (just kidding). I am purchasing this classic so I can share it with my children. I am sure they will grow to love it just as much as I did! Huge Harold is one of the greatest children's books out there - it is very easy reading and very easy to listen to. The illustrations are wonderful. A double thumbs up to Bill Peet!

My brother received this book as a gift in 1961. We all loved it right from the start. It rhymes, and the story has a sweet message for kids. Most of all, the illustrations are wonderful!
