Hurry Up, Birthday!
By Paeony Lewis
Illustrated by Sarah Gill
The inspiration for Hurry Up, Birthday came from my daughter's unbearable excitement at the prospect of her birthday. When she was young she'd start crossing off the days on her calendar for months beforehand.
It’s the same for Bouncer the rabbit. It’s his birthday tomorrow and he simply can’t wait. He bounces fast to try and hurry time, but that doesn’t work. So Mother Rabbit gives Bouncer lots of jobs to try and stop him thinking about his birthday. Will that work? Will Bouncer’s birthday ever arrive?
