Friendship also works without many words

Bunny has very special ears: They are beautiful, long and soft! But: he can‘t hear with them …

He would love to build a hut in the forest with his friends. He had already enjoyed it so much in his dream.

And they are all there: Fox, Squirrel, Hedgehog and Mouse. But when they say something to him, Bunny doesn‘t understand a thing. His ears are just different. And so he keeps asking “What did you say?“

He nevertheless understands what they mean, because they hug him, give him a present, or a kiss on the cheek. And together they finally build a fine hut out of branches and leaves. When they lie down to sleep in their hut, Fox begins to snore awfully loud … It‘s a good thing that Bunny can‘t hear anything!

by Gitte Spee & Bernadette Vermeij

“… a heart-warming book to read. […] Children find the idea of building a hut mega-exciting. Bunny can’t understand what his friends are trying to tell him, but they don’t let that bother them. With a hug, a little treat, a beautiful flower, a kiss on the cheek, they express their affection and friendship without words. And last but not least, Bunny’s hearing loss even turns out to be a stroke of luck – after all, there are two sides to everything in life. The pictures are enchanting. Just a few colours are used to create the loving scenes.  A beautiful story and a highly recommended book.” – Bibliotheksnachrichten, Martina Mansoor
