RABBIT & BEAR 'THE PEST IN THE NEST'

SYNOPSIS

SYNOPSIS

"PEACE AND QUIET," shouts Rabbit. "THAT'S ALL I WANT."

Owch. He's hurt his own ears again.

What with Bear's snoring, and a BANG!BANG!BANG! noise from up in the tree, Rabbit knows that Something Simply Has To Be Done.

But high in the branches, perhaps Bear can show Rabbit how to see the world from a different place ...

A story of friendship, wisdom, and how to be REALLY NOISY.

  "The Rabbit and Bear series ... goes from strength to strength with The Pest in the Nest, in which Spring has sprung and Rabbit is out of sorts with everyone, whether they're loud and happy or sad and slow. His belligerence ("I'm angry! And I want to be calm!" So I'm angry that I'm angry!") and Bear's wry, gentle responses are illuminated by Field's radiant palette of yellow-greens and greys, creating an utterly seductive book"  — The Guardian
