Rabbit is bored. What shall he do? Luckily, Wolf has the perfect solution. "Why not write a story?" he suggests. Rabbit thinks this is a great idea! And so Wolf teaches Rabbit to use his imagination to create the perfect story with lots of exciting props and interesting characters. Rabbit is desperate to know what happens next when it suddenly becomes clear that Wolf is very hungry —uh-oh, so that’s how the story ends. But Wolf hasn't reckoned on Rabbit's excellent imagination. . . .

Praise For Use Your Imagination

O’Byrne depicts the duo’s test of wits in lively, colorful mixed-media illustrations. Her delightful tale is a testament to the power of pretending.

The mixed media illustrations are appealing to young readers, and the various text styles add voice and interest to the dialogue. This book would fit well in a fairytale or folktale unit.

About the Author

Nicola O’Byrne was banned from watching Saturday morning television by her parents and she has been drawing ever since. She grew up in Singapore surrounded by the vibrant colors of the tropics and had not even heard of illustration as a career before she discovered the illustration course at Edinburgh College of Art. She has a master's in printmaking from Camberwell College of Art. Nicola O’Byrne gets most of her ideas for children’s books when she should be working on something else, and bases all of her characters on people she knows. She lives in England.
