Little Grey Rabbit lives with Squirrel and Hare in a little house on the edge of a wood. It's
going to be Grey Rabbit's birthday on Midsummer Day, and Squirrel and Hare are planning
a wonderful surprise for her. They've invited all their woodland friends to a birthday party,
and are making a birthday cake, all by themselves! But they are keeping it a secret from poor
Grey Rabbit, who feels very left out. She'll just have to wait and see.
Alison Uttley (1884-1976) said of her characters,"Why do children love them? Because I believe in them."She grew up at Castle Top Farm in Derbyshire, and her passion for the countryside comes across vividly in her timeless Little Grey Rabbit stories.
