Little Grey Rabbit: Little Grey Rabbit's Birthday Party
Little Grey Rabbit lives with Squirrel and Hare in a little house on the edge of a wood. It's going to be Grey Rabbit's birthday on Midsummer Day, and Squirrel and Hare are planning a wonderful surprise for her. They've invited all their woodland friends to a birthday party, and are making a birthday cake, all by themselves! But they are keeping it a secret from poor Grey Rabbit, who feels very left out. She'll just have to wait and see -
Alison Uttley (1884 - 1976) grew up at Castle Top Farm in Derbyshire and her passion for the countryside comes across vividly in the timeless Little Grey Rabbit Stories, the first of which were published over eighty years ago. Margaret Tempest (1892 - 1982) illustrated these classic tales with sensitivity, warmth, wit and a true understanding of the English countryside where they are set. Her partnership with Uttley lasted for forty years.
