The Sunnytown bunnies are back for a third picture book adventure, and it might just be their best one yet! It’s Christmas Eve and Santa’s elves have fallen suspiciously unwell (just WHO gave them all those candy canes?), so it looks like Santa needs some help. Luckily, our gang of vehicle-loving bunnies are here to the rescue.

Cue chaos at every turn – hopping in and out of chimneys, getting stuck in snow, stuffed in stockings, and having the time of their lives on Santa’s sleigh. It’s a crazy Christmas, but it’s SO MUCH FUN.

Review by Stacey

Bunnies in a Sleigh is the third book in the Sunnytown Bunnies series by author Philip Ardagh, after Bunnies on the Bus and Bunnies in a Boat.

In the last two books, the Bunnies have been both hilarious and naughty, this time though they are still very amusing but have tamed their naughty side a little as they help Santa deliver his presents.

The book has been written in a near-perfect rhyming style and you get to see the Bunnies riding on Santa’s sleigh after the elves ate a little too much sweet stuff and didn’t feel very well.

The illustrations are superb. They are bright and colourful and they capture all the moments perfectly, especially the Bunnies expressions.

Overall, if you are looking for a Christmas book to give your child/guardian (and you) a giggle then this is certainly one to pick up. I was a little disappointed that the Bunnies weren’t as mischievous as in the previous books but we can’t have them ruining Christmas, can we!!
