Bookbug's Book of the Month: Follow The Firefly/Run, Rabbit, Run

Follow The Firefly/Run, Rabbit, Run by Bernado Carvalho

Book Island ISBN: 9780994109828


Have you ever seen a picture book with two titles and two covers, that can be read from back to front?

Follow Firefly in his search for a flashing light and then turn back at the end of the book to find the second storyline about Rabbit’s escape.

A clever and colourful picture book that is sure to be read countless times.


"This book is perfect if you don’t know whether you’re coming or going this January after the festivities. A clever, wordless picture book that can be read in both directions, with beautiful bright and colourful illustrations. Follow the firefly or chase the rabbit back through the pages, you could even make up your own story!"

- Ruth Grindley, Early Years Operations Assitant Manager
