The Rabbit Listened

Cori DoerrfeldClick here for biography

Taylor has been through a very difficult time, and now he is surrounded by concerned friends who each tell him how he should feel and what he should do to start feeling better. But it is not until they have gone and a little rabbit comes and sits quietly by his side, that he begins to process his thoughts, and start to think and feel on his own.

Cori talks about her book to Booktrust.
