Synopsis

Following on from the huge success of "Little Rabbit Lost" and "Little Rabbit Goes to School", a fantastic and beautiful new story all about running away. Little Rabbit is fed up with being told off and decides he'd be better off living on his own. So he runs away from Mama and Papa and starts building his own house under a hedge (at the bottom of the garden). Before too long another little runaway, Molly Mouse, appears and they decide that two runaways are better than one. But soon after building their lovely new home, Little Rabbit quickly discovers Molly Mouse is a bit of a bossy boots and keeps telling him off - just like Mama and Papa. Then Molly Mouse terrifies him with a scary bedtime story and all Little Rabbit wants is to be tucked up safe and warm in his real home. Luckily, Mama and Papa know exactly where to find him and come - along with Molly Mouse's mama - to take him home.
