An unexpectedly sad tale
Reviewed in India on 9 July 2021
I hardly expected a story about a conceited toy rabbit to be able to incite the depth of emotion I experienced when reading this children's book.
Although this deeply forlorn journey possesses a happy ending, I was struck by how much sadness the protagonist endures in his desperate attempts to find his way back home after being lost at sea.
Salvation is always just out of reach, as the protagonist experiences loss after loss that almost makes the reader themselves want to give up. But the little rabbit perseveres, taking you with him until the very end of his story - a story of determination, purpose, loss, hope, and ultimately, love.
