Little Sister Rabbit wants to have an adventure all by herself. She loves stamping in puddles, building boats and skimming stones without her clever big brother telling her what to do.

But she's having so much fun that she loses her way! Will Little Sister Rabbit be able to find her way home?

From the award-winning Swedish children's author, Ulf Nilsson, and one of Europe's best-loved illustrators, Eva Eriksson, comes this charmingly illustrated tale of independence and sibling love.

These classic Little Sister Rabbit stories are much-loved bestsellers in Sweden and can now be enjoyed by new generations in English. They are beautiful, full color, hardback, gift editions with a cloth spine.

(Ages 3 to 6 years)

“Little Sister Rabbit Gets Lost and Little Sister Rabbit and the Fox really appealed to my grandchild's sense of humor. We both giggled at the wonderful illustrations and thoroughly enjoyed the stories.” —Kindling 

“A Swedish classic reminiscent of the world of Beatrix Potter. Sepia tones with softly muted hues from Eva Eriksson create an old-fashioned playfulness when Little Sister's wandering takes her away from the burrow until she's maybe wishing Big Brother was with her after all.” —Foreword Reviews 

“First published in Swedish thirty years ago, this enchanting tale of Little Sister Rabbit's expedition is perfect for story sessions with very young children.... Eva Eriksson's drawings and use of muted watercolor create an endearing protagonist and vividly expresses all her moods—from abandoned joy to quivering fear, desolation and relief. Highly recommended for reading aloud.” —School Library Association 

“Pair this title with Beatrix Potter's books for a roundup of gentle offerings that are part cautionary tale, part adventure and end with the comfort and safety of home and family. Its folksy, classic picture book charm makes it just right for one-on-one sharing.” —School Library Journal
