When the World is Ready for Bed

Author(s): Gillian Shields

Picture Books

A family of rabbits go through their end-of-day routine, from having their tea to brushing their teeth, sharing a story and being tucked up in bed, until they peek out of the window and see something that's a change from their usual routine in this classic picture book. With delectable art and warm, lyrical text, this is a thoroughly modern picture book with strong echoes of books such as "The Velveteen Rabbit" and the works of Beatrix Potter.
