This is the story of a little rabbit who just loves to read. So much so that he dreams of books and this obsession leads him to a life of crime because Ralfy just cant help himself when it comes to books!
I read this and thought it could be me, except I don’t steal books. But I love books and I really hope that as my children get older they develop this love and lose interest in the television.
We’ve read this book several times already; at bedtime, after school as a family and just with the two year old having a snuggle on the sofa. Each reading it has proved a hit. There is something really joyful and celebratory about the idea of a rabbit who is obsessed with books to the point of wanting to steal them.
A picture book is nothing without the pictures though and these are really fabulous and feel very fresh. I’m looking forward to many, many more Ralfy Rabbit books. You can find out more here: http://www.bloomsbury.com/uk/wanted-ralfy-rabbit-book-burglar-9781408843130/
