To celebrate the publication of Wanted: Ralfy Rabbit, Book Burglar by Emily MacKenzie Bloomsbury is running a digital hunt for #RalfyRabbit. Every day from Monday 12th January until Friday 16th January a blogger will be hiding a different Ralfy image somewhere on their blog. All you have to do is find the image and tweet to be in with a chance win an exclusive Ralfy prize. Today I’m hosting the hunt!
Here is today’s clue to find the Ralfy image hidden on Playing By the Book:
If Ralfy reformed and decided to swap books rather than steal them, where on my blog would he go? Look in my side bar for the book shaped parcel!
Once you have found Ralfy Rabbit, you need to share the image on twitter tagging @kidsbloomsbury and @playbythebook along with ‘I found #RalfyRabbit’
The prize is an ‘I love books’ kit that includes Wanted! Ralfy Rabbit, Book Burglar book, mug, t-shirt, sticker sheet and signed print! You can only enter once per day, and your entry only counts if you have the right image for the right day.
Please submit your entry by 5pm (UK time) on each day.
The full line up of participating blogs is:
On January 19th , Bloomsbury will announce the five winners via Twitter! There’s one winner for each day. The hunt is open internationally.

Wanted! Ralfy Rabbit, Book Burglar is the exciting debut from Emily MacKenzie. It publishes in the UK on Thursday 15th January 2015.
Some rabbits dream about lettuces and carrots, others dream of flowering meadows and juicy dandelions, but Ralfy dreams only of books. In fact, he doesn’t just dream about them, he wants to read them ALL THE TIME. Soon his obsession sends him spiralling into a life of crime. Luckily, a new friend is on hand to find a law abiding solution to his voracious appetite for all things literary.
A huge advocate of libraries, Emily hopes that Ralfy will help to encourage a love of them in a new generation “With the recent cuts to libraries I want to remind children and parents about the joy of books. I hope they’ll explore the huge range out there and reap the benefits of their local library, just as I did as a child”.
Originally from Northumberland, Emily grew up beside a beautiful pine forest near a little village called Slaley. She moved to Scotland to study Graphic Design at Edinburgh College of Art and after graduating, spent seven years working in-house as a cover designer for a publishing company. In 2011 she took the plunge to go freelance in order to concentrate on her love of illustration and print making, and to pursue her dream of one day having her own children’s books published.
Emily lives in Edinburgh with her husband Alan, and hopes to one day live by the sea in a cottage with a vegetable patch, a yellow front door and a cat called Crayon.
