I found this in a book shop and thought the illustrations were gorgeous. On first reading the story, I wondered if the message was more aimed at adults than my 2 year old. However, it has become his most requested book - I think because it has lots of recognisable places in it. He likes talking about going to a cafe and eating carrot cake like the rabbit for example, and always stops at the picture of the rabbit on the telephone at the beginning and pretends he is the rabbit phoning his friend. I don't agree with the reviewer who has said the story pushes consumerism too much (and I am wary of this myself) - for me, it simply shows lots of the places we go in our daily lives.

This is a lovely story about two bbf's (bunny best friends) amazingly illustrated and lovingly told. My nearly 3yr old daughter loves it and we read it twice a night. A really good gift idea, because, sadly but happily for us its not hugely popular but you will be when you buy it!

I picked up a copy of "brown rabbit in the city" on recommendation, and was very disappointed. While I appreciate that modern day society is about promoting consumerism at every turn and valuing only material objects, this was the first time I'd found it in a children's book and it took me aback frankly.

"Hat, bags, bangles & scarves. Little Rabbit wanted to try them all." The book basically lays out a trip to the city darting around shops and cafes to finally wrap-up with a brief realisation that the two friends have been ignoring and neglecting one another. A welcome respite but the book's central tenet is anything but friendship and the real value of relationships. Another book by the same author (Hamish the Highland Cow) talks of a scruffy cow who's a misfit in his peer group until he finally gets his hair trimmed and subsequently gets showered with gifts by his friends for tidying himself up. So you'd better not try to raise your kid to be anything other than compliant with the group!

I'm just not a fan of this kind of programming, so I think I'll be sticking to the offerings of Julia Donaldson, Axel Scheffler, Lydia Monks, et al. You can make up your own mind, but in my opinion it's books like these -especially read time and again- that give our children moral direction.
