Celebrate Easter with this heart-warming story about a brilliant bunny author who finds a cure for the blues
My name is Fuzz. I am a poet and a writer. I am a loner and don’t like to leave my burrow. When I was young, I had a hard time because one of my ears was shorter than the other. My classmates made fun of me…
Fuzz McFlops is one of the most famous rabbit-writers in the land, but since he was bullied as a child for his different-sized ears, he’s led a lonely and reclusive life, writing sad books and poems such as The Withered Carrot, The Unlucky Rabbit’s Foot and Unhappy Easter.
One day, he receives a strange violet letter tied with a purple ribbon from one of his fans Charlotte Passe-Partout, urging him to write happier, more optimistic poems. Furious, Fuzz responds with outrage, but begins to wonder whether she may have a point.
As their varied and intriguing correspondence continues, will Fuzz be able to overcome his shyness and accept her invitation to tea?
Published for the first time in English, Fuzz McFlops is an award-winning bestseller from one of Brazil’s leading children’s writers and has sold over 200,000 copies abroad. It is displays a unique fusion of illustration and storytelling and features writing in all forms from letters, to poems; from fairytales to recipes, from songs to postcards.
