There can be no doubt that Polly Faber's tale of kindness and forgiveness (with a dose of adventure!) was the perfect text for Briony's artwork - whose illustrations are often inspired by her rural surroundings. Briony brings a warmth and richness to her work with her soft pencil line and vivid colours.

I was so excited to illustrate Polly Faber’s funny, gorgeous tale of a greedy bunny and the dangers he encounters! I’ve always had a soft spot for rabbits, I had one called Daisy growing up (shown here on the right). He was sexed incorrectly, hence his feminine name, which stuck. I won a £20 voucher in a ‘Pets At Home' drawing competition and I bought Daisy with my winnings. When I was 9 my best friend Natalie and I were adamant we would live together when we were grown ups and keep as many rabbits as we wanted.
