Works about this Work

[Review] The Great Rabbit Chase Kevin Steinberger , 2017 single work review
— Appears in: Magpies : Talking About Books for Children , September vol. 32 no. 4 2017; (p. 31-32)

— Review of The Great Rabbit Chase Freya Blackwood , 2017 single work picture book

'In her first self-authored picture book since her writing debut in Ivy Loves to Give (2009), illustrator Freya Blackwood has the measure of her early childhood readership. Here, in The Great Rabbit Chase, she presents a simple circular take in which the reader is at one with the cumulating group of characters moving lineally through the pages in pursuit of their goal - an escaped pet rabbit. The format is a classic staple of literature for infants and always delights with its page turning surprises; Blackwood has served the genre well.' (Introduction)
