Launch Party for Rachael Smith’s “The Rabbit” – September 11 at 7pm!


Join Rachael Smith and the Avery Hill Publishing crew as they raise a glass to celebrate the launch of Rachael’s second graphic novel ‘The Rabbit’.

Following her debut, critically acclaimed graphic novel ‘House Party’, ‘The Rabbit’ tells the story of Eleanor and her younger sister Kathy, who have run away from school, from home and from all of their troubles. They may also be running from reality itself, as they seem to have acquired a new friend in the form of a talking cartoon bunny rabbit called Craig. As Craig grows bigger and bigger, the girls soon discover exactly what kind of creature has joined them on their adventure. Running away is not as easy as it seems…

‘The Rabbit’ is set to be one of the best graphic novels of 2015, and Rachael will be there to lovingly sign and draw in books and to answer any and all questions about drawing comics and giant rabbits. The first 100 customers will also receive an exclusive bookplate which Rachael has produced especially for Orbital. Avery Hill also have a limited number of free bookmarks, free badges, and free rabbit-themed confectionery! Not to mention free drinks!
