Mr. Beagle Goes to Rabbittown by Lori Doody
Rabbittown was a pleasant place to live.
Every bunny knew every bunny, and every bunny was friends.
One day a new neighbour arrived and opened a corner store. His name was Mr. Beagle. The bunnies didn’t know what to think of him.
When Mr. Beagle moves to Rabbittown, his new neighbours aren’t sure what to make of him. Everyone else is a rabbit, after all. But then mittens start to go missing, and no one knows where they might be. Who better than Mr. Beagle to sniff out the culprit!
With quirky, charming illustrations and sweet, simple text, Mr. Beagle Goes to Rabbittown celebrates how one finds a space in a new place, and the warm embrace of community. A picture book full of fun, with a bit of mystery, too.
What folks are saying
"Mr. Beagle has a mitten mystery to solve, and through Lori Doody’s colourful art and storytelling, Rabbittown’s citizens learn that diversity, acceptance, and teamwork build a strong and vibrant community. We enjoyed this book immensely."
