martha & the bunny brothers



a series of books that are pure bottled sunshine – for happy bunnies everywhere!



Martha is the ultimate happy bunny: cheerful, upbeat, seeing the best in every situation.

And her bunny brothers Monty and Pip absolutely adore her.


Martha and the Bunny brothers : I (heart) School




Martha is getting ready for her first day at school, and she’s really really looking forward to it.



But there’s one huge problem: her bunny brothers are going to miss Martha SO MUCH. What will she do?


Luckily she has a BRILLIANT IDEA!


I’ve always thought that reality is much more googly and funny, chaotic and surprising, than picture books tend to allow for. This is real family life… but with bunny ears on.


It’s a sunny-side-up take on the potentially thorny theme of starting school. There are too many negative books out there, with the emphasis on ‘I don’t want to go,’ ‘I’m so nervous,’ I’m too shy…’


I hope Martha will sweep everyone up with her cheery approach to every challenge, giving encouragement to children and ideas for positive thinking to mums and dads. Turning life’s lemons into lemonade – and getting lots more members for The Happy Bunny Club!
