The Rabbits

A.A. Milne

The adventures of a group of friends, pre-war, with far too much time on their hands.

The Rabbits, as they call themselves, are Archie Mannering, his sister Myra, Samuel Simpson, Thomas of the Admiralty, Dahlia Blair and the narrator, with occasional guests. Their conversation is almost entirely frivolous, their activity vacillates between immensely energetic and happily lazy, and their social mores are surprisingly progressive.

As a portrait of charming middle-class play on the brink of being shattered by World War I, they fail entirely to take themselves seriously. “…So here they all are. Whatever their crimes, they assure you that they won’t do it again” – A. A. Milne
