Little Grey Rabbit is one of the classic gems of children's literature. The series is being relaunched, tying in with a new, beautifully animated television adaptation, and will delight children as much today as when it was first published seventy years ago. As a punishment for stealing food from Grey Rabbit's house, Squirrel tied a knot in Rat's tail. Now, he is reminded of his wickedness wherever he goes and can no longer poach or thieve or hunt as a rat must to survive! What can Rat do to free himself? Wise Owl advises him to turn over a new leaf -- to work honestly instead of thieving for a living. And so a penitent Rat goes about helping his neighbours where he can, and though surrounded by temptation, he feels his tail loosen and his heart grow lighter with every good, unselfish deed. Rat is reformed and respectable -- and a sought after carver.

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.
