"This is the story of Pookie, a little white rabbit with soft floppity ears, big blue eyes and the most lovable smile in the world. He lived with his mother and father and four brothers and three sisters, deep down in the warm, brown earth under an oak tree in Bluebell Wood."

Sometimes, I come across a book that I know I would have just *adored* as a child and it captures my fancies and takes me back to the days when fairies played in our yard and magic whispered in the wind. "Pookie" by Ivy Wall...more

This book was not published in the US, and then for a brief time it became available from Collins. It is one of my most cherished childhood books, and I have been collecting them over the past 2 decades. However, collectors have become aware of them and some of the prices are through the roof--upwards of $800!

I wish Collins would republish. There are lots of grown-up Pookie lovers out there, and lots of kids who have never met this resilient white rabbit with a Secret Sorrow--his wings!

Read this as a child, then lost the books at some stage. My daughter bought it for me when they were reprinted. A book to treasure. Beautiful illustrations, from when childhood was innocent.

Pookie & Belinda = OTP. Also, the chapter where Belinda put a pretty scarf around her hair so that she could do the spring cleaning totally made ME want to go and do the same. My mother did not complain ;)

I can't say how many times I've read this book. And every time I do, I cry. It's such a wonderful story about acceptance of who we are.

I look forward to sharing this with my grandchild(ren).

This book is no longer in print. It was one of my most beloved childhood books and I have loved sharing it with my son.
