The rabbits came many grandparents ago. They built houses, made roads, had children. They cut down trees. A whole continent of rabbits The Rabbits offers a rich and immensely valuable perspective on the effect of man on his environment. 10th Anniversary Edition Bestselling author, Marsden, has created a dramatically moving allegory of colonisation told from the perspective of native animals, in this stunningly illustrated volume. Examining the consequences of the arrival of a group of rabbits with unfamiliar ways, the story shows how colonisation can result in the domination of the environment and its other inhabitants. A thought-provoking book, it earned its author and illustrator the CBCA Picture Book of the Year.
