That Rabbit Belongs to Emily Brown by Cressida Cowell

Emily Brown loves her old gray rabbit named Stanley. She loves to go on adventures with him to the ocean, space and rain forest; to name a few. Problems begin for Emily when her Most Glorious Royalness Queen Gloriana the Third decides that she wants Stanley for her own, and will not take no for an answer. The queen tries to bribe Emily with other toys to get Stanley, but Emily refuses to part with her beloved toy. However, disaster strikes when the queen decides to steal the toy rabbit in the middle of the night. While the story in this picture book is entertaining, the pictures are what grabbed me. They show in excellent colors and art styles the vividness of Emily’s imagination. They are fun, eclectic illustrations that differ from most picture books and are the main reason I would recommend this book.
