I gave this new Squish book to my Mum to read to my 2-year-old niece when she visited. They both very much enjoyed it, which is not surprising given it’s written and illustrated by Katherine Battersby, award-winning author of nine children’s books.
Squish Rabbit’s Pet is the third book in the much-loved Squish Rabbit series, joining Squish Rabbit and Brave Squish Rabbit on the shelves with their wonderfully squishy book covers for little hands.
Squish is just a little rabbit, but being little leads to big dreams… Most of all, Squish dreams of having a pet.
Squish sets out with his best friend, Twitch, to try to find a puppy for Squish to adopt as a pet.
‘Squish may be small, but he has a very large heart,’ says Battersby. ‘He’s loyal, loving and determined to make his dreams come true.’
