Book Review ~ Paisley Rabbit And The Treehouse Contest

Initially I wanted to read this book because as a child I always wanted a treehouse. I have always lived in an apartment in the city, so I could never have one. Once I received it however I couldn’t wait to read it because of the illustrations. The watercolor illustrations are absolutely amazing, and draw you in immediately. As I started reading the story I just couldn’t put it down until I was finished. This is a great story which shows that if you are gracious, follow rules, thankful, and plan ahead nothing can stop you!


Step into the awe-inspiring and magical world of a young rabbit and her gang of woodland creatures in a unique and modern take on the classic children’s novel, The Tortoise and the Hare. As a seasoned children’s author, Steve Richardson writes his newest book–Paisley Rabbit and the Treehouse Contest that praises one gutsy heroine’s imagination and the power of determination.

About Paisley Rabbit

In a delightful tale of defying the odds, Paisley Rabbit takes readers through the story of a lone girl rabbit competing against her friends to win a big treehouse construction contest. When the school year starts, Jimmy Squirrel, whose dad owns the biggest construction company in the city, challenges a close group of friends to a treehouse contest. To everyone’s surprise, Paisley Rabbit, who has never touched a hammer or a nail and has no one to help her, joins the contest as a long shot to win. But as thing heat up, Paisley shows she has some tricks up her sleeve.

In this wonderfully inspiring tale, Paisley Rabbit and the Treehouse Contest reveals:

  • The importance of planning—while the other characters jump right into building, Paisley Rabbit goes to the library and does research
  • Helping the less fortunate—winning can be fun but helping others is ALWAYS much more satisfying!
  • You can do anything when you put your mind to it—utilize your own talents and seek out other people who are brilliant to create a group masterpiece!
  • How to think big—expand your creativity by learning and continuing to nurture your strengths
