Squish Does Japan (part 1)

Very few know this, but Brave Squish Rabbit actually had a third launch. A secret launch. A tricksy wily sneaky launch … in Japan.

Yes, my little rabbit snuck into the suitcase of notorious children’s writer Julie Nickerson while she wasn’t looking. She was too busy preparing to set off on a long deserved holiday with her family to the land of cherry blossoms and anime. Once they were over there my clever little rabbit hacked Julie’s e-mail account and sent me the following trail of evidence as to his whereabouts. The images and words are transcribed exactly as I received them.

It seems he’s braver than I ever imagined…

Brave Squish Rabbit packed his suitcase…

… and went to Japan!

Brave Squish Rabbit had to go to the toilet. “I’m not THAT brave,” he said. So he crossed his little legs and held on.

Brave Squish Rabbit had a moment of quiet reflection in Kyoto and contemplated life. And chickens.

Brave Squish Rabbit went to the beautiful ancient city of Nara.

Unfortunately, there were things there that were even scarier than chickens…

[We interrupt our regular broadcast to bring you an important community service announcement.] Squish Rabbit says “NO” to Nara.

Brave Squish Rabbit was launched today. ‘This is WAY better than Jetstar,’ he said.

What a cheeky little rabbit! Stay tuned, as next post I’ll put up the rest of the photos from his trip…
