A funny rhyming tale about Queen Fluff, a rich and rather snooty bunny. She has everything she could possibly dream of, including a rather grand burrow, but she is lonely. Deciding that she wants to make some friends, she writes a rather demanding note to all the bunnies in the land inviting herself to visit their burrows. She adds that she will stay at her favourite for a week. The other bunnies in the kingdom are poor and can not afford to host the demanding Queen. They come up with a plan to make a lot of mess to deter her from staying. The perfection seeking Queen is disgusted by the state of burrows and decides to return home. However, when she hears that the poor bunnies planned this deliberately, she is ashamed of her behaviour. Having learned her lesson, she decides to host a ball for the other bunnies at her grand burrow and everyone is happy!
Fantastic illustrations providing lots to talk about. We particularly liked the pictures of the burrows and spotting all the disgusting things the bunnies were doing to deliberately make a mess. My children found this bit hilarious - I hope they don't get any ideas! We spent a lot of time talking about what the Queen should have done at the start and why she felt ashamed of her behaviour. A really great book for little ones as it teaches that even with all the money in the world, you still need friends. 4 stars.
