From the Back Cover

Percy, the park keeper, is having a day off. It is a perfect day for doing nothing. The sun is shining and Percy and his friends settle down to enjoy a picnic and a bit of a nap. As Percy dozes, three young rabbits play nearby.

But Percy's peaceful picnic is abruptly disturbed when a nasty accident befalls the smallest rabbit. Percy soon devises a plan to rescue her – but somehow his plan doesn't turn out quite as expected.

Nick Butterworth's stories abut Percy, the gentle park keeper, have enchanted numerous children and have already sold over half a million copies. 'The Rescue Party' is a delightful new story about Percy and his friends.

My 3 year old daughter absolutely loves the Percy Park Keeper books which we first came across at the library. She loved them so much we have purchased several of the books and I suspect we will be purchasing some more in the future! The illustrations are fantastic and the stories are very enjoyable for my daughter and myself to read. They are a favourite for bedtime stories.

My 5 year old son and I are great fans of Percy the Park Keeper and this doesnt disappoint. Percy is having his day off and whilst the rabbits are playing they land on some rotten timber covering an old well and one of the rabbits need to be rescued. My son especially loves the pages that fold out towards the end. Another gorgeous book to add to the Percy collection.

I love the tales from Percy's Park. The illustrations are beautiful. Perfect for children and adults too. Gives you a nice homely feeling, with good values and a good story line. There are many authors and many different types of books out there. This is one series you would love to introduced your little ones to. My kids love this book!

Beautifully illustrated, well written stories. My son (now 17) had the complete set when he was little, now I am buying for my nephews. They love them. Especially looking for the hidden items in each page.

I bought this for my niece in Sweden who is 3.5. However I also leant it to a young lad who is the same age and he LOVES it - I may have to get another copy for my niece! The illustrations, as always, compliment the story so beautifully. Percy leads the animals to try to solve the problems with everybody helping. Great!

We all love Percy the Park Keeper in our house (2.5 years to 48!). In this story, Percy's day off is interrupted when a rabbit falls into an empty well and Percy and his animal friends have to go to the rescue. As always an engaging story is accompanied by Nick Butterworth's beautiful illustrations.

|The illustrations in this book really bring it to life for young children. the text can seem a little wordy but Percy has become a well loved character and this, one of his first adventures is a wonderful immaginative story for children to enjoy over and over again.
