Review: The Scariest Thing of All

Pip is a little bunny who lives in the woods with lots of other bunnies - little bunnies, big bunnies, medium-sized bunnies. Pip is extra small. And he's always scared.

Pip is scared of a lot of things. The usual things. The less usual things. Things that are just plain weird.

One evening, Pop wakens from an afternoon nap and hears a scary noise. Raaar. Raaarrrrrr!

Terrified, he hightails it into the dark woods where he encounters plenty of spooky sounds and scary-looking shapes in the dark ... but it's not until he stops to really listen that he realises something ... perhaps he's not afraid of anything, after all.

Gliori's adorable, highly detailed and imaginative illustrations are a highlight of this sweet book about bravery, about believing in yourself - and about viewing the world from a different perspective.
