In Two Rabbits, Little Brown Rabbit and Little Grey Rabbit have had an argument. As they go their separate ways into the night, the wind whispers around them to remind them of their sharp words. Will they be able to come back together and find a way to save their friendship?
The story portrays the physical and emotional journey of two best friends, as they experience feelings of anger, sadness and loneliness after an argument. It shows us that friendship can overcome differences and disagreements, especially when we are willing to admit our own mistakes.
Larissa Ferenchuk loves writing about animals and nature, relating them to the emotions and feelings we have as humans. She based this story on rabbits as she has a gorgeous little pet grey rabbit at home. Her aim was to create a story that shows that even though we are all different, (different opinions/ideas/journeys) we all experience similar feelings and emotions. She also wanted to show children that they can overcome disagreements and arguments by understanding their emotions and offering the simple words of a heartfelt ‘sorry’.
Prue Pittock’s subtle and whimsical illustrations add to the emotions in the story while the depiction of the characters on their separate paths allows us to empathize with both friends.
