One morning, Rabbit discovers a birthday parcel addressed to him. Inside is a Bible and on the flyleaf is written `Read Me'. As he wonders at this odd present a brightly painted gypsy-style caravan hurtles down the road...and narrowly misses him. Rabbit picks up the book and joins the caravan travellers - Fred the horse, Caravan Bear and Whitby the dog.
The Animal's Caravan, has echoes of children's classics such as Wind in the Willows and Alice in Wonderland as Rabbit leaves his home to set out on an unexpected journey - a journey to find friendship and make sense of the world around him. He also finds himself on a journey of faith as he and his new friends wrestle with some of the often difficult concepts in the bible, thereby gaining fresh insights and understanding of God's loving involvement and care for the world.
