Fuzz McFlops is a reclusive yet creative rabbit. A great poet and writer, he has penned celebrated works such as The Withered Carrot and Unhappy Easter, so is disgruntled when he receives a critique from Charlotte Passe-Partout suggesting that his writing could be enhanced by a touch of optimism. This leads to a flurry of correspondence between the two rabbits, until Fuzz begins to wonder if Charlotte’s positive approach may have some merit.
This is a wonderfully quirky tale, with endearing characters and delightfully amusing illustrations. Many writing styles are explored, including autobiography, poetry, letters, telegrams, instructions and recipes. A joy to read for pleasure, but also a creative and entertaining way to introduce sophisticated readers to different forms of writing. Perfect for readers who love writing.
