Be More Bernard

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Bernard has decided that he's not going to be like all the other bunnies any more. He's not going to twitch his nose and prick his ears. And while the others might dream of carrots, Bernard's dreams are altogether more... disco!

Soon, all the other bunnies are admitting to Bernard that they, too, are a bit sick of eating carrots and dreaming of carrots and acting exactly the same. Some want to paint, others want to eat cheese... They can all still work and play and live together, but now do it in a way that gives everyone lots more self-expression.

This is a funny and fabulous picture book that will coax children out of their shells and encourage them to stand out from the crowd. The main message is that life is better (and more fun!) when people are truly themselves and don't feel the need to conform to what's thought of as "normal".

Every reader will feel joy and relief when Bernard finally shakes off his rabbity shackles and rollerskates into the first double-page spread in the book – full of glorious colour and freedom!
