Squirrel, Hare and little Grey Rabbit have all caught colds. Whilst they suck butterscotch and sip blackcurrant tea, their friends bustle about bringing remedies. What they really need, though, says Mrs Hedgehog, is a change of air…
“They ought to have a day at the sea,” advises Wise Owl. “You’ll get rid of your sneezes when you feel the sea breezes.”
So, in a blue caravan drawn by Duke the horse, Hare, Squirrel, little Grey Rabbit and all their friends set off for the sea.
At journey’s end, when they feel the warm sand under their feet and the sea air in their fur and feathers, all the animals are filled with joy. Little curling waves sing to Grey Rabbit, Squirrel goes paddling and Hare braves a swim.
But the seaside is not quite as restful as it appears: wild gulls and cliff-top climbing make everyone’s hearts beat faster.
At the end of a happy day, as the setting sun casts a golden pathway in the waves, the party of sleepy friends clamber into the caravan, and Duke takes them home.

Little Grey Rabbit Goes to the Sea (Little Grey Rabbit Library)From the Back Cover:
Little Grey Rabbit lives with Squirrel and Hare in a little house on the edge of a wood. One morning Squirrel wakes with a cold, Hare has a cough and Grey Rabbit has the sneezes. "What they want is a change of air," Mrs Hedgehog mutters. "They ought to have a day by the sea," Wise Owl hoots. So everybody gets ready and sets off in the caravan belonging to Duke, the horse. As soon as they fell the warm sand under their feet and the strong sea air in their fur they all feel so much better. All is not well for long though, when some inquisitive seagulls snatch their treasured belongings and drop them into their nests high up on the cliff. Who will be brave enough to get them back?
Alison Uttley's Little Grey Rabbit stories have been enjoyed by children for over seventy years. Her sharply observant eye, wonderful wit and pure enjoyment of the cosy never fail to delight. It is a testament to both her and Margaret Tempest's skill that these classic stories are as appealing today as ever.
