Hilarious, quirky, thoughtful fun
This is your typical Jasper Fforde. Weird, edgy, often hilarious. The alternate world we are taken into this time is one that is gloriously absurd and pain... READ MORE

Synopsis

Waterstones Welsh Book of the Month for August 2021 England, 2020. There are 1.2 million human-sized rabbits living in the UK. They can walk, talk and drive cars, the result of an Inexplicable Anthropomorphising Event fifty-five years ago. And a family of rabbits is about to move into Much Hemlock, a cosy little village where life revolves around summer fetes, jam-making, gossipy corner stores, and the oh-so-important Best Kept Village awards. No sooner have the rabbits arrived than the villagers decide they must depart. But Mrs Constance Rabbit is made of sterner stuff, and her family are behind her. Unusually, so are their neighbours, long-time residents Peter Knox and his daughter Pippa, who soon find that you can be a friend to rabbits or humans, but not both. With a blossoming romance, acute cultural differences, enforced rehoming to a MegaWarren in Wales, and the full power of the ruling United Kingdom Anti Rabbit Party against them, Peter and Pippa are about to question everything they'd ever thought about their friends, their nation, and their species. It'll take a rabbit to teach a human humanity

I'm on the fence
A political satire set in a UK where over a million giant rabbits settle. These amiable, anthropomorphised creatures are not welcome everywhere, especially... READ MORE

Classic Jasper Fforde - with extra topicality!
I’m a huge Jasper Fforde fan. I don’t think he could write a book I didn’t enjoy. This one is a classic mash-up of thriller, comedy, and the gloriously wei... READ MORE
