Storytime at Home

with Fiona the Storyteller


Mum went to the shop to buy some gumboots, but she came home with a rabbit….

Gumboots the rabbit is soft and sweet, but he has a habit of escaping. One day he slips out the front door while mum is in the shower, and it takes a whole neighbourhood full of friends, family and helpful passersby to track him down.

This book is written and illustrated by Freya Blackwood, a celebrated creator of magical worlds, who we are lucky enough to call a local.

Watch Freya introduce us to her newest rabbit friend, and then sit back and enjoy as Fiona reads us The Great Rabbit Chase.
