A brilliant picture book inspired by the Brisbane floods, from the one and only Chris McKimmie. The river had burst its banks. The dam was overflowing. 'Don't go outside, Alex!' Mum shouted. But just then Rabbit hopped out the open window ...

Chris McKimmie lives in Brisbane. This story grew out of his experiences during the floods of January 2011.
