Picture Book of the week: Everybunny Dance! by Ellie Sandall

Ellie Sandall’s Everybunny Dance is one of the most joyful picture books published in the lead up to Chritstmas by Hodder Children’s Books. If you have ever owned a bunny as a pet, you certainly know how much happiness rabbits bring to the family with their quite nature wondering around. You could spend hours watching them peacefully hopping around as in a bucolic scene.


Unsurprisingly a story which has rabbits as the main characters can only be joyful. Everybunny dance is a delightfully exuberant story about friendship and looking beyond appearances. A powerful message that children need to learn in our multicultural society.

Did you know that bunnies love to dance?

Did you know they love to sing and play the flute?

There’s a lot they get up to when nobody’s watching!

But while they’re having fun, they don’t notice that someone is creeping nearer.

Does he mean trouble? Or does he just want to play?

Foxes are the natural enemies of bunnies as they are predators. However this does not mean that all foxes are bad and seeking for prey. There might be exceptions as the bunnies soon discover.

This story is written in a very poetic way which makes you want to read it aloud to children over and over and pause in between to breathe in and enjoy the illustrations.

Author and illustrator Ellie Sandall has shown her creative talent since college. She loved creating pictures from a very young age and has a passion for children’s books (she keeps all her books in a huge wardrobe in her bedroom!).

Everybunny Dance is Ellie Sandall’s fifth picture book.
