About the book:
It’s very nearly Christmas and it promises to be a magical one for Lola and Ella ... that is until our little bunny realises that someone else is about to enter their lives and change everything.

Will Ella still have time for her bunny? And what’s Santa got to do with it?

About the author:

Kathy Urban is a multilingual journalist and the author of the "Hop Lola Hop" series about the adventures of a beloved bunny.

Her books are inspired by her experiences as a parent and her daughter's favourite comfort toy.

An advocate of reading, Kathy is passionate about promoting a life-long love of literature in the very young.

Kathy has lived in the UK, the US, Denmark and Germany, and these days, calls Dubai her home.

About the illustrator:

Born in London, Siski has lived in various countries and currently resides in Chile with her family of humans and dogs.

Painting watercolours gives her the same joy as swimming, eating scones with jam or swinging in a hammock.

She is largely self-taught, having taken a handful of watercolour and illustration courses over the years.

More than anything, Siski loves children's books. She would eat them if she could. But they don’t taste as good as scones.
