‘Animal-Mum’ to many, Georgina says: “When I was growing up, a huge part of how I saw the world and my beliefs came from reading books of all kinds. I would take characteristics and traits from books and characters that I loved and emulate the positive behaviours from those that resonated with me. I think that still very much holds true today for children and reading. From my experience with working in Animal Welfare and charities, I can see how much there still needs to be done in terms of educating people about how animals should be respected for their individuality and allowed to show natural behaviour without us making them into something we want, rather than who they are.
My inspiration for this book was therefore to take that magic of reading for children and apply a critical education about animals in a fun and fictional/ story telling way, but not just your typical cats and dogs. Rabbits are the third most owned companion animal in the UK, but arguably the most misunderstood. Anything we can do to improve their care at the same time as nurturing and entertaining the minds of our children can only be a win!”
