Review: 

Berry Goes to Winterland is the first Railway Rabbits book I've read, and hopefully it won't be the last. It's a lovely little story about seven rabbits who have an exciting adventure, which includes meeting Father Christmas!

Berry goes missing when he finds a tunnel and takes a wander. His Longears family are worried about his whereabouts and so they set off to find him. There are strong themes of family and friendship running through this book, and I really like the bond between all the rabbits. Barley, Bramble, Bracken, Mellow, Fern, Berry and Wisher are very cool indeed!

Berry Goes to Winterland is written in such a way that it feels as if it's a classic children's story. It's timeless and unmarred by technology, plus it features some brilliant, whimsical illustrations by Anna Currey. I really enjoyed meeting the Longears rabbits and I'll definitely keep my eye out for more instalments in the future!
