`Packed with fun, fantasy and the sort of adventure guaranteed to have sticky little fingers hungrily turning the pages' The Mail on Sunday

Life is an adventure. Anything in the world is possible - by will and by luck, with a moist carrot, a wet nose and a slice of mad courage!


Little Shylo Tawny-Tail is proud to call himself one of the Royal Rabbits of London , a secret order who live under Buckingham Palace and fight evil across the world. But high up in London's famous skyscraper, the Shard, the horrible Ratzis are plotting to cause chaos during a visit from the President of the United States. And when the Grand Burrow is attacked and Shylo is kidnapped, it looks as though they might just manage it! Can Shylo escape in time to save the day?

The Hobbit meets Fantastic Mr Fox meets Watership Down in this bestselling series from Santa Montefiore and Simon Sebag Montefiore , which proves even the smallest rabbit can be the biggest hero. Featuring illustrations throughout by award-winning illustrator Kate Hindley .


PRAISE FOR THE ROYAL RABBITS OF LONDON :

Shylo is back in another great adventure. We loved this story as much as we did the first book and once again our favourite parts are the beautifully described places and the strong, likeable and quirky characters. I think the "Royal Rabbits" books would make great gifts as they are sutible for a lot of different ages and look fantastic

Brooke couldn't put this down. Right from the off the book was interesting and gripping. Brooke loved that it was fun but with adventure too. 

The main character shylo is loveable and interesting. Brooke read it as part of her 50 books in a year she is currently over halfway through and has said that this is the best book she has read so far.


Overall I would recommend this book it's fun has a fantastic sense of adventure and it's great at getting younger children into reading more.

Another instant hit! My 7 yo read the first book from this series and loved it so much I was worried that this wouldn't live up to her expectations but right from the beginning she was as engrossed as before. We read it together although the language and type size would have been suitable for her to read to herself but I have enjoyed these books as much as my daughter. This is a lovely series and I have bought copies as gifts for friends as we've loved it so much.

This is a fabulous book about Shylo, a shy country rabbit who has been recruited by the Royal Rabbits of London whose mission is to protect the royal family. The evil Ratzis are always plotting to cause havoc and when a visit is announced that the president of the united states is to visit the royal family the Ratzis do their upmost to ruin the visit.

I read it to JJ aged 6 aged 6
The Royal Rabbits of London: Escape From the Tower 9781471157899

We read the first Royal Rabbits of London and JJ loved it - Shylo Tawny-Tail is a fabulous little character - the hero of the stories who is trying to save the Visit of the President of the United States from uproar caused by the very mischievious Ratzis - unfortunately Shylo gets Rabbit-napped, and fears he might not save the day - JJ loved the excitement of the impending trouble that the Ratzis wanted to cause, and had built up a deep affection for Shylo, who we met in the first book. An absolutely stunningly illustrated book that is sure to take pride of place on the book shelf in every home! JJ has already read this twice with me, i think it will be a bedtime favourite!

This was read to my 6yr old, who loved it. It arrived at a great time as she's currently doing 'London' as a topic at school and was thrilled that she knew about the landmarks the rabbits frequent. The illustrations were a big hit and this is set to become a firm favourite. An exciting and original adventure.
