Use Your Imagination

Publisher: Nosy Crow

Rabbit is bored, so librarian Wolf suggests that he writes a story. Rabbit is delighted - what a brilliant idea! Wolf is full of great ideas - some of them less friendly than others. He teaches Rabbit to use his imagination to create the perfect story with lots of interesting characters. Rabbit really wants to know what happens in the end, but Wolf is very hungry… Fortunately, Wolf hasn't reckoned on Rabbit's brilliant imagination and, in a final clever twist, Rabbit saves himself from the wily librarian.

A metafiction about storytelling wrapped up inside the familiar tropes of sneaky wolves and innocent rabbits, Use your Imagination is a delight both as a story to share with little ones and as a reference for older children who might be writing their first stories.
