Review: Wanted! Ralfy Rabbit, Book Burglar

Everybody loves something, but Ralfy’s passion is a bit different. While his friends dream of juicy carrots, Ralfy is rating his favourite stories (The Hoppit gets three carrots and so does The Wind in the Burrows). He also writes lists of books to recommend to his family and friends.

What would you do when you run out of books? Ralfy sneaks into other people’s houses to read while they are asleep, but one thing leads to another until Ralfy becomes a burglar.

This tale of a passion for stories that leads a little bunny astray and another youngster to detectiving will delight adults and children alike, especially when the final pages lead to the greatest bookish space of all: a library.
