“What an amazing book, by Steve Richardson, I think it goes beyond a children’s book with the thoughtful, ambitious, skillful heroine, Paisley Rabbit showing us how you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.”

“Paisley Rabbit is such a sweet story! It’s like having a cup of hot cocoa with marshmallows after a long day playing in the snow, or a nice dip in a cool lake after a long summer hike. It makes you feel good. Inside and out. The beautiful, heartwarming story is accompanied by the most gorgeous illustrations that take your breath away.”
