Summary of Brave Squish Rabbit Summary of Brave Squish Rabbit Reviews for Brave Squish Rabbit An Excerpt from Brave Squish Rabbit
Who's afraid of the dark?
Not Squish!

Squish Rabbit is a very small rabbit, and he's afraid of lots of things. Like storms. And chickens (you would be too, if you were small!). And the dark. Especially the dark. But when he goes to meet his good friend Twitch the squirrel one evening, he can't find her. She's missing! And it's getting dark! Squish knows he must be brave to find her, but it takes all of his courage . . . to discover that the dark can be magical, especially when filled with stars.

With playful text and adorable illustrations, Brave Squish Rabbit will encourage young readers to face their fears.


Praise for Brave Squish Rabbit by Katherine Battersby:

"A little humor that goes a long way toward conquering big fears." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Children will love how friendship trumps terror when the two reunite...Consider pairing this charming book with Patricia Polacco's Thunder Cake(Philomel, 1990), Kevin Henkes's Sheila Rae, the Brave (Greenwillow, 1987), and Ed Emberley's Go Away, Big Green Monster! (Little, Brown, 1992)." —School Library Journal

“[Battersby] creates expressive characters...and Squish's world is a delightful collage of felt trees, giant chickens (made from yellow feathers), and torn-paper landscapes.” —Publishers Weekly
