Mrs Scary

Jonna Björnstjerna

Not being scared is easier said than done…

Little Brother Rabbit is visiting his lovely grandmother. Everything should be fine, but somehow he gets lost in the forest again. Luckily he meets kind Mrs Bold, who invites him back to her house to rest his tired paws. But beneath the sweet surface of Mrs Bold a completely different person is hiding: Mrs Scary!

Mrs Scary just hates everything that is nice and cute, like Little Brother Rabbit. Now what’s he going to do?

The first book about the Rabbit Family, The Tale of the Wonderful Rabbit Family and the Monster in the Forest, was voted best book of the year in 2007 for children aged 6 and under by the Book Jury, where children themselves vote for their favourites. And adults liked it too:
“Both the pictures and the way the language is used are evidence of a genuine talent.”
“[…] a spine-tingling, wonderfully tense thriller for pre-school children.”
