Shortlisted for the Sainsbury's Children's Book Award and the Children's Book of the Year in the Irish Book Awards

This is a brilliantly funny story of a rabbit and a bear who discover that things are always better when they're shared with a friend.

'Peace and quiet,' shouts Rabbit. 'That's all I want.'

Owch. He's hurt his own ears again.

What with Bear's snoring, and a BANG!BANG!BANG! noise from up in the tree, Rabbit knows that something simply has to be done.

But high in the branches, perhaps Bear can show Rabbit how to see the world from a different place....

From novelist and playwright Julian Gough, and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize Jim Field, this is a tale of friendship, wisdom, and how to be really noisy.

Critic reviews

"A perfect animal double-act." (The Times, Book of the Week)

"Rabbit's Bad Habits is a breath of fresh air in children's fiction, a laugh-out-loud story of rabbit and wolf and bear, of avalanches and snowmen. The sort of story that makes you want to send your children to bed early, so you can read it to them." (Neil Gaiman)
