Speaking of rabbits,Usagi Yojimbo.Everyone loves Usagi.

Comics recommendations are fine but I'm really after more books... We now have a couple of the Ranger's Apprentice books on the way along with Mike Carroll's first two (Quantum Prophecy, Sakkara); should keep us going for a bit at least.

The Giggler Treatment by Roddy Doyle, and it's sequels. Hilarious.

Currently reading 'Ned's Circus if Marvels' with my daughter and she adores it. Its does work the cliche a little heavy, but she doen't notice and I get so made author Justin Fisher's attempt to think of new and 'interesting' ways to spell classic beasties names 'gor-balins' I mean really stop that already.

For all that its an incredibly exciting read.

I bought this as a gift for a friend's child a while back. The Guardian reviewed it as 'The Usual Suspects' for children.
