It is Christmas Eve and growing dark when Squirrel and Hare hear the sound of ringing bells…
Little Grey Rabbit is returning to the little house on the edge of a wood with Hare and Squirrel’s Christmas present: a beautiful scarlet sledge. With great excitement they all take it to their favourite hill. But later that night careless, adventurous Hare takes the sledge for a moonlight ride and loses it.
On Christmas day all the woodland creatures are invited to a party by kind Moldy Warp the Mole. When Little Grey Rabbit, Squirrel and Hare see the tree with candles on every branch, and beneath it piles of cakes, jars of honey and bottles of hawthorn ale, the sad business of the sledge is almost forgotten. But the biggest surprise of all is when Rat comes up to them with the lost sledge – piled high with presents.
AGE 4-8 as well as adults who will remember Little Grey Rabbit from their own childhoods.

Alison Uttley's story of Little Grey Rabbit's Christmas was first published in 1939 and has more than stood the test of time, rating amongst the great classics of our time, loved by millions, and winning over new readers every day.
This striking 60th-anniversary edition of the classic story combines the magic of Alison Uttley's storytelling and Margaret Tempest's divine illustrations, conjuring up the true spirit of Christmas past and present in a stylish and utterly irresistible book.
A stunning recreation of all that is good in Little Grey Rabbit's world, with carol singers, mince pies, sprigs of holly and blazing hearths bringing a warmth and delectability to the life of Little Grey Rabbit and his adorable friends, this special edition of the classic tale would make the perfect gift for any child--or indeed any adult--who takes pleasure in a good, old-fashioned, heart-warming story.
A great book for adults to read along with young children, and for older children who are just starting to read alone. (Age 4 and over) --Susan Harrison
