´A perfect animal double-act.´ (The Times, Book of the Week)
´PEACE AND QUIET,´ shouts Rabbit. ´THAT´S ALL I WANT.´
Owch. He´s hurt his own ears again.
What with Bear´s snoring, and a BANG!BANG!BANG! noise from up in the tree, Rabbit knows that Something Simply Has To Be Done.
But high in the branches, perhaps Bear can show Rabbit how to see the world from a different place ...
From novelist and playwright Julian Gough, and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Jim Field, this is a tale of friendship, wisdom, and how to be REALLY NOISY.
´Rabbit´s Bad Habits is a breath of fresh air in children´s fiction, a laugh-out-loud story of rabbit and wolf and bear, of avalanches and snowmen. The sort of story that makes you want to send your children to bed early, so you can read it to them.´ Neil Gaiman
About the Author
Julian Gough is the author of several novels, a children´s book, some BBC radio plays, and the narrative at the end of the wonderful computer game, Minecraft (TIME magazine´s computer game of the year). His first children´s book, Rabbit´s Bad Habits, published in 2016, has been widely critically-acclaimed; Neil Gaiman called ´a laugh-out-loud story´, and Eoin Colfer called ´an instant modern classic´.
Julian has won the BBC National Short Story Award and has been shortlisted for the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction. He also, in his youth, wrote the words (and sang) on four albums by the cult Galway group, Toasted Heretic, and had a top-ten hit in Ireland with ´Galway and Los Angeles´, a song about not kissing Sinead O´Connor. He was born in London, raised in Tipperary, educated in Galway and now lives in Berlin.
