Silver Paintbrush 2022 (Shortlisted for the Golden Paintbrush for Best Illustrated Children’s Book)
Book of the Month March 2021 (Germany)
‘What exactly are you?’ the hedgehog asks the rabbit with no nose. ‘Well, I’m just a rabbit,’ he replies. At least, that’s what he’s always believed. But then, by chance, he discovers that there’s something unusual about him. Ashamed of how he looks, he won’t let anyone see him.
Until one day, he is found by a little girl. She likes the rabbit just the way he is. When he finally feels happy with himself and his new life, something unexpected happens…
‘A charming story about being who you are and feeling loved. […] Gorgeous, lush illustrations’ – Trouw
‘Rarely has a story about doubting, searching and coming home been so beautifully told as in this picture book. The illustrations are reminiscent of children’s drawings and depict a vulnerable rabbit who unexpectedly finds a new home and becomes the happiest rabbit in the world.’ – German Academy for Children’s and Youth Literature
