Mr Hare has a secret: there are big, juicy cherries at the top of the tree, but he needs his friends' help to get them down.
One by one, he tricks each friend into dancing with him under the tree, until all the cherries fall to the ground and the forest friends have a great feast. Accumulation, sound words, repetition, and pure entertainment make this the perfect read-aloud book for adults and children to share.
HANNAH DALE has her own successful company, Wrendale Designs, that started on a crowded farmhouse kitchen table. With an eclectic background in art, biology and the London Stock Exchange, Hannah started painting hares when she and her husband had their baby, because she was drawn to their expressive faces; a trait she captures perfectly in this, her first book.
