Mr Ermine starts a vegetable garden.
Seeds in the ground.
A bit of compost.
A lot of patience.
How hard can it be?
It’s not so easy after all
with all the moles, all the mice,
all the pigeons, caterpillars, lice.
But fortunately, he gets help
from Little Rabbit…
What a wonderful friend, isn’t he…
With the serious and diligent Mr Ermine, and the blithely opportunistic Little Rabbit, Elle van Lieshout and Erik van Os have created two unforgettably cheerful characters. In many ways they are each other’s opposite, but that does not stop them from forming an unconditional friendship. With beautiful colours and an eye for witty details, Mr Ermine and Little Rabbit’s Vegetable Garden has been brought to life by illustrator Marije Tolman.
