Description

The runaway bunny, first published in 1942 and never out of print, has indeed become a classic. Two generations of readers have fallen in love with the gentle magic of its reassuring words and loving pictures. It is here published in a new edition for which the artist has redrawn some of his pictures; they are wholly in keeping with the softy poetic timeless spirit of his famous originals.
