Book description

Hare is in a bit of a bother. He had a really good idea, but now he's lost it.
Fantail, Tomtit and the rest of Hare's friends try to help but nothing works ...

until Hare has another idea.

Gorgeously illustrated, Hare is a delightful story about friendship and loyalty with a dollop of humour thrown in for good measure.

Book Reviews

'I showed this book to my writers' group and they all oohed and ached over it. Illustrator Heather Arnold thought the art work very captivating and said it was an excellent example of artwork and white space, as well as contrasting pages. She also like the creative way Deborah incorporated speech bubbles. We thought Deborah had cleverly introduced extra story into the art and speech bubbles for the adult reading the story to the child too. For example the tortoise worrying the lost idea was going to be a race referring to the fable 'The Hare and the Tortoise', and the rabbit being indignant that the hare was taking over his/her job and then being delighted when it is presented with its first Easter egg. ...'

'This is a really quirky book. I just loved reading it. The ending is fun and silly, and kids from 2 to 5 years of age are just going to love the movement of the images.'
