Rabbit's Hop by Alex Rance

Thu 19 March 2020

Jack Rabbit loved Rabbit Island. He loved his friends and family and all the little rabbits. He loved being the best at hopping and chomping and (nearly the best) at zigzagging.

When cousin Roo invites Jack Rabbit to Big Island, he's very excited - and a little bit scared. Getting to the island will be tough! Can he make it?

Written by champion AFL footballer, Alex Rance, and illustrated by Shane McGRabbit's Hop is a picture book about self-belief, determination, being kind and having fun.

Alex Rance plays for the Richmond Tigers and was a key player in Richmond's drought-breaking 2017 AFL Premiership win. Off-field, Rance's first picture book, the bestselling Tiger's Roar, was published in 2018.

Shane McG is an award-winning illustrator based in Melbourne.
