The beloved Nutbrown Hares hop back in four exciting new stories from the author of the best-selling Guess How Much I Love You stories.
Just like young children everywhere, Little Nutbrown Hare likes to explore, play, venture out into the world, and sometimes just savor the comfort of being at home with loved ones. But whatever he does, and wherever he goes, Big Nutbrown Hare is always there to cheer him on. In a beautiful jacketed Guess How Much I Love You storybook, here are four heartwarming new stories that little readers (and their bigger companions) will instantly relate to.
Complementing McBratney’s mastery at capturing the feelings and concerns of toddlers in words, Wagner and Tarbett channel his original illustrator in posing sinuously drawn characters, alone and together, in ways that subtly but clearly express joy, anxiety, excitement and curiosity... Low tufts of wildflowers and other foliage backed by thin washes of pale greens and blues create a properly idyllic natural setting... Close to sublime. Required reading for all young children taking their first ventures into the wide world beyond immediate parental reach.

Straightforward and comforting... The artwork successfully captures the energy of and mutual affection between the hares in a quartet of stories that are as encouraging and quietly reassuring as ever.
