Description

The laugh-out-loud story of a boy, a rabbit, and a lot of bad luck, from the one and only Judith Kerr, creator of The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Mog the Forgetful Cat.

It all started with the school rabbit. Snowflake is the school rabbit, and Snowflake is trouble.

At least that's what Tommy thinks, and when Snowflake is unexpectedly left for him to look after and everything starts to go wrong, it looks like Tommy might be right. Even if he is getting more pocket money for feeding it and might be able to afford a new bike after all.

And with a sick sister left in bed, a snobby actor left with suspiciously damp trousers, and no rabbit anywhere to be seen, Tommy can see his hopes of a new bike disappearing as fast as Snowflake.

Will Snowflake turn up, and turn out to be more good luck than bad? Or are Tommy and his family doomed by the curse of the school rabbit?

A fantastically funny and exquisitely illustrated new young fiction title from the iconic Judith Kerr, this is the perfect story for boys and girls of six plus to read alone or with their family.

    Young Tommy is convinced that the school rabbit kept by Miss Bennett is cursed, as it seems to bring misfortune to him and to his family in this amusing early chapter-book from celebrated British children's author and artist, Judith Kerr. Snowflake had a penchant for peeing on people's legs, something Tommy had already discovered for himself, and something which caused quite a bit of trouble for Tommy's father, when an important film star came to their home to discuss a possible project while Snowflake was staying there. With this potential job off the table, it seemed as if Tommy's dream of getting a bicycle for Christmas would never come true. Fortunately, things took an unexpected turn...As a long-time fan of Judith Kerr, someone who has read and adored most of her many books about Mog, that rotund and forgetful kitty, as well as her autobiographical novels based upon her childhood as a refugee from Nazi Germany (When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit and sequels), I was saddened by her death this past year (2019). It was therefore a happy surprise to see The Curse of the School Rabbit (a posthumous publication) come into work, and I immediately picked it up. I found the story amusing, and the character of Tommy sympathetic. The accompanying illustrations were charming, as one would expect, and captured the sense of humor throughout. Recommended to fellow Kerr fans, and to anyone looking for humorous but ultimately heartwarming tale for their beginning chapter-book readers.
