What a great book, it’s perfect for my little boy. It’s nice to have a book that we can read over a few nights that’s suitable for his age. The story is really nice and the illustrations are great. We really enjoyed this one.

What a lovely little book! I read this to my son JJ - he is a big fan of rabbits - he loved the bright illustrations  and larger print and was able to read to me too - the story centers on a little girl called Stevie who has to move from her high rise block of flats in the city to a house in the country - and she really doesnt want to. she has a little set of toy rabbits that come to life when she isnt aware - the Twitchet family!  cute and fun adventure, suitable for any age.

Meet the Twitches is an amazing book with stunning illustrations that will blow your mind. I like the Twitch family because they come alive and explore Stevie's new room. The Twitches live in a cosy teacup house with miniature furniture and mini books. In this book one of the members of the Twitch family goes missing! Where has Daddy Twitch gone? Silver Twitch goes on a big adventure to find Daddy Twitch. My favourite character is Silver Twitch because she is adventurous and she saves the day. I enjoyed the story in many ways but I absolutely loved the illustrations because they put a smile on my face. If there is another book about the Twitches I would be desperate to read it!

This is a gorgeous book to share. It has beautiful illustrations and a story that really captured my 5 year old's imagination. Stevie, the main character, lives in a high rise before moving to the countryside. Her Nanna gives her a gift of a beautifully decorated teapot...and 4 tiny rabbits. 
We really hope that the author decides to write further stories in the series as we loved the characters and would enjoy learning more about their adventures.

Fantastic Book for everyone to read.

I enjoyed reading this book as Stevie was an emotional girl. The book shows how she copes with moving home and I can relate to this. Nanny blue gave her a beautiful teacup house with four tiny toy rabbits, 'The Twitches' for her house move. I like the fictional characters of these Twitches. My favourite Twitch was Silver, as she was adventurous and had exciting ideas to rescue her dad. I also loved going through the beautiful illustrations in this book which made it very interesting and brought the characters to life.

Such a beautiful story. Was just right for my daughter (who is 6) to read on her own as well as enjoying me reading it to her.
The illustration throughout is wonderful and really brought this book to life.
Lovely little story that my daughter could really imagine happening and she also wanted the Twitches and teacup house herself.

In 'Meet the Twitches' a girl called Stevie is not happy about moving to the countryside even though she'll be closer to her dad. Before they leave for the new house Nanny Blue drops by with a very special present-a giant sized teacup home to the Twiches, a family of toy rabbits. There's a mum, dad, sister and brother. Stevie loves her present but before she can play with it properly she loses Father Twitch during the house move! 

This is such an adorable story which will delight young readers. Amatullah whizzed through this story and thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the bit about how Father Twitch was rescued. 

The delightful illustrations by Pippa Curnick made us want to dive in to the book straight away. We hope the Twitches are back in another sweet tale.

Stevie loves her life living in her tower block, her room, her friends even her school so is really unhappy when her Mum decides to move to the countryside and she has to leave them all behind. To cheer her up, her beloved grandmother gives her a very special gift, a teacup house containing four tiny toy rabbits the Twitches. Little does Stevie know just how special they really are because they have a secret, when she she's not looking they come to life. Our rabbits have a nose for an adventure and it's not long before they find themselves in turmoil when Daddy Gabriel gets lost. It's up to brave, inventive Silver to come to his rescue and save the day.  Hayley deftly mixes real life and fantasy in this enchanting tale that I absolutely loved. Paired with Pippa's stunning full colour illustrations that are filled with the most wondrous details and warmth, this is bound to delight and charm younger readers.

This is the book we have been waiting for. We have tried one children's 'novel' and the content was too emotionally old for Sophie. This one is perfect in every way. Sophie is 2 years old but we get through a dozen books each night for bedtime. We read this in 3 nights. Beautiful illustrations, beautiful story, full of imagination heart and warmth. This book also keeps Sophie interactive with the way words bounce of the page, nice large font and high quality print. This is a beautiful tale about four toy rabbits, the Twitches at teacup house who come alive when Stevie isn't looking. Stevie is moving home and is upset. Nanny Blue gives her the rabbits and teacup house which belonged to her mother before her. Silver twitch gets lost but his daughter is clever and inventive and finds him, they get back as Stevie and Nanny Blue walk back into the room after Stevie distraught that she will never find him again. But Her mother knew he would be all right and back home, just as they always do.Stevie thinks life in her new home will be just fine after all.

I love rabbits which is why I wanted to read this book. The cover of the book is very appealing and I couldn't wait to read it.
The book is about a girl called Stevie, who is moving to the countryside and she doesn't really want to go. When her Nanny comes (who is called Nanny Blue), she bring a teacup house as a present. It has lots of furniture in it and rabbit characters to play with. Stevie couldn't wait to set it up and play with it, but she wasn't allowed to play with it until they arrived at the country house. 
When she was carrying it through the garden of the new house, she dropped one of the rabbits but it has disappeared. Little does she know that the sister rabbit Silver Twitch is also looking for the missing rabbits, the rabbits can come alive! What will happen......
