The Black Rabbit by Philippa Leathers Who is the mysterious black bunny that keeps following rabbit around?
 3 of 12 

March

It’s a beautiful sunny morning when rabbit steps out of his burrow, but who is this mysterious black bunny that keeps following him around? Philippa Leathers’ The Black Rabbit (Walker, £10.99) is a charming tale of how our plucky hero learns not to be afraid of his own shadow. There’s double trouble in Sidney, Stella And The Moon by Emma Yarlett (Templar, £12.99). When twins Sidney and Stella have an argument over a bouncy ball, it leads to a mission to find a moon. Winnie The Witch is on an adventure too, roping long-suffering black cat Wilbur into a prehistoric journey in Winnie’s Dinosaur Day (Oxford University Press, £6.99), another magical story from Valerie Thomas. Life is far more serene in Flora And The Flamingo by Molly Idle (Chronicle, £10.99), a wordless journey exploring the pros and pitfalls of friendship through a synchronised dance.
