Overview

The Ballad of the Lost Hare is a story, in verse, of a disobedient hare (rabbit), who will not come home when he should. His parents finally tell him to leave and not come back. His adventures are about different animals he encounters along the way. The moral of the story is to do what your parents tell you to do.

The book has beautiful, full-page color illustrations of the hare and the animals he meets.

* This e-book is a true representation, from a high-definition scan of a pre-1923 print version of the book. Unlike other e-copies of the book, it was not produced by using Optical Character Recognition (OCR). OCR-scanning old books is seldom, if ever, error-free. This often results in an e-book with many **, ^^, >> and typographic errors when OCR can't read the word or punctuation correctly.

* "True representation" means that if there are typographic, spelling, or grammatical errors that the editor judges to have minimal impact on the book's comprehension, they have been preserved; otherwise, they were corrected.

* In other words, no changes or as few as possible have been made to either illustrations or text in order to bring you an e-book that is as close to the original as possible.

Meet the Author

Margaret Sidney was the pseudonym of American author Harriett Mulford Stone Lothrop (June 22, 1844–August 2, 1924). In addition to writing popular children's stories, she ran her husband Daniel Lothrop's publishing company after his death. After they bought The Wayside country house together, they worked hard to make it a center of literary life.

Harriett Mulford Stone was born in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1844. She was educated at seminaries near her home, traveled extensively in the United States, and began creating literary compositions early in life.[2]
She published nothing until 1878, at the age of 34, when she began sending short stories to Wide Awake, a children's magazine in Boston. Two of her stories, “Polly Pepper's Chicken Pie” and “Phronsie Pepper's New Shoes,” proved to be very popular with readers. Daniel Lothrop, the editor of the magazine, requested that Stone write more.
The success of Harriett's short stories prompted her to write the now-famous “Five Little Peppers” series. This series was first published in 1881, the year that Stone married Daniel Lothrop. Daniel had founded the D. Lothrop Company of Boston, who published Harriett's books under her pseudonym, Margaret Sidney.
