One Snowy Night
‘A heartwarming bedtime tale…’ Susan Hill, The Independent

After the Storm:
‘…look no further for the best present for any child from two to six.’ Susan Hill, The Sunday Times

From the Back Cover:

Percy, the park keeper, is having a day off. It is a perfect day for doing nothing. The sun is shining and Percy and his friends settle down to enjoy a picnic and a bit of a nap. As Percy dozes, three young rabbits play nearby.

But Percy's peaceful picnic is abruptly disturbed when a nasty accident befalls the smallest rabbit. Percy soon devises a plan to rescue her – but somehow his plan doesn't turn out quite as expected.

Nick Butterworth's stories abut Percy, the gentle park keeper, have enchanted numerous children and have already sold over half a million copies. 'The Rescue Party' is a delightful new story about Percy and his friends.
