Angela Swan re-works Little Grey Rabbit!

Angela Swan was recently commissioned to breathe new life into the much loved classic 'Little Grey Rabbit' stories by Alison Uttley and Margaret Tempest. Published by Templar, 'Little Grey Rabbit's Busy Day' is a delightful tale that literally jumps out of the page in pop up form. Angela has been sympathetic to the original illustrations, and yet has brought her own style into play, creating the next chapter in Little Grey Rabbit's history.
