‘What’s the matter?’ asked the little white rabbit.

It was only recently that I was introduced to Garth Williams’ own written-and-illustrated children’s book, The Rabbits’ Wedding. It was love at first sight. Most modern readers, myself included, wouldn’t blink an eye at a black rabbit and a white rabbit tying the knot, but the story actually created quite a stir when it was published in 1958.
