"Poor old Rhyming Rabbit is feeling lonely and left out. None of his fellow rabbits appreciate his carefully thought-out poems. 

And as for the other woodland animals?

They just tell him to be quiet! Then one starry night he meets someone who shares his enthusiasm for poetry ..."

The music for the audio book was composed by Iain Carnegie and the audio was recorded at Sans Walk Spoken Word Studio in London on the weekend of March 24, 2012.

In addition to The Rhyming Rabbit, David also reads the book Jack and the Flum Flum Tree also written by Donaldson.
