This is a new story about Little Nutbrown Hare from the creators of the hugely popular Guess How Much I Love You? published 25 years ago.
Little Nutbrown Hare wants to play, but Big Nutbrown Hare is just too busy. Little Brown Hare asks permission to go off exploring on his own. He tries playing with his reflection and his shadow but that’s no fun, they are just another version of him. When he reaches Cloudy Mountain, he finds a real friend, a little snow hare who wants to play too. They have great fun with games of rough and tumble, digging and building. When they decide to play hide and seek however things don’t go entirely to plan, as they both hide at the same time! But Little Brown Hare returns home having enjoyed his day exploring and having made a friend too.
This is a lovely story for the very young about friendship and developing independence. It is full of warmth in the words and the beautiful, soft illustrations just like its predecessor Guess How Much I Love You? which was loved by so many. It is sad that the author Sam McBratney has very recently died and so will not see the likely success of this companion story to a well-loved classic.
