Little grey Rabbit lives with Squirrel and Hare in a little house on the edge of a wood.
Down in the dell lives a family of Weasels, in a small dark house hidden by foxgloves. Whenever anyone walks by, the foxglove bells ring. Then the Weasels slip out and run as softly as shadows after the passer-by.
Old Hedgehog has his milk stolen by them, Speckledy Hen her eggs, Hare his handkerchief and Squirrel the green bow right off her tail!
The Weasels work with such speed and cunning that no one ever sees who is doing the thieving. Is it a magical trick?
But it's little Grey Rabbit who finds herself in the greatest danger of all, when the Weasels kidnap her.
How will she get back to the little house on the edge of the wood, back to squirrel and hare?About the Author:
Alison Uttley was born in 1884 in Derbyshire. She wrote about her characters, "Why do children love them? Because I believe in them." And it is easy to imagine that just over the next hill, little Grey Rabbit, quick Squirrel, bold Hare, kind Moldy Warp and little Fuzzypeg really are all going about their business.
