Since publication of the first Little Grey Rabbit book in 1929, the series has become a classic of children's literature. The popularity of Alison Uttley's magical stories and Margaret Tempest's lively illustrations meant that generations of children grew up with Grey Rabbit, Squirrel, Hare, Moldy Warp and little Fuzzypeg. These lovely versions of favourite original titles will bring the world of Little Grey Rabbit to a new generation. Titles: The Squirrel, the Hare and the Little Grey Rabbit; How Little Grey Rabbit Got Back Her Tail; The Great Adventure of Hare; The Story of Fuzzypeg the Hedgehog.
