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.
