The Constant Rabbit

The Constant Rabbit

Peter Knox lives quietly in one of those small country villages that's up for the Village Garden of the Year award. Until Doc and Constance Rabbit move in next door, upsetting the locals (many of them members of governing political party United Kingdom Against Rabbit Population), complicating Peter's job as a Rabbit Spotter, and forcing him to take a stand, moving from unconscious leporiphobe to active supporter of the UK's amiable and peaceful population of anthropomorphised rabbits.

    ‘The language of division can always be monetised.’This novel is an absolute highlight of my reading year. Honestly, it was utterly brilliant. The best way I can describe it is as a fantastical po...

    How I love Jasper Fforde and his original, offbeat, clever fiction. I’ve waited in vain for a new Nursery Detectives book, his noiresque nursery rhyme crime novels, read every single one of his utte...
