Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
Harris the hare is dismayed by the size of his feet. His loving grandfather proudly shows him all the wonderful uses of big feet. With them, he can spring high in the air. Their strength will enable him to go the mountains to observe the birds. He can dig a hole to rest from the heat, and they will allow him to run fast, very fast. Grandfather quietly explains that he is old now, and it is time for Harris to run and explore on his own. Sparse text leaves plenty of room for the delightful watercolor and ink drawings. The hares fill the pages, looming large and giving evidence of their big feet. Rayner uses unusual perspectives to convey her point of view and show motion. She adds humor (Harris uses his feet as a sun shade) and apprehension (the shadow of a menacing wolf) in this lesson on the appreciation of size. Whether viewed as a life lesson or a lively tale of a winsome rabbit, this book is satisfying either way. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1

Harris asks his granddad why he has such enormous feet, and the whiskery old hare takes him on a series of adventures that show the youngster what he can do with them. Their outing includes joyous hopping "to the top of the world," contented digging, and life-preserving running (from a wolf in the distance), and end when worn-out Grandad leaves Harris to go forth on his own. The tale, told completely in spreads with one short block of text to each one, suffers from a lack of momentum, narrative tension, and a satisfying conclusion. Also, the absence of detail in either foreground or background art, suggesting to some the openness of the countryside, may give others the impression of wasted space. The screen print, watercolor, and ink illustrations, though lovely and evocative, don't do enough to make up for what the writing leaves out. Rayner's Augustus and His Smile (Good Bks., 2006) gives children a glimpse of this artist and illustrator's vast talent.-Lisa Egly Lehmuller, St. Patrick's Catholic School, Charlotte, NC

Kirkus Reviews
A grandfather hare takes a frisky youngster on an odyssey of (self-)discovery. Sitting in a grassy field, brown Harris the hare bemoans his enormous feet. His gray Granddad appears, seemingly out of thin air and, hopping high in the sky, offers to show Harris why his feet are so large. Abruptly, they're off on a long-distance journey. Across a brown desert, through a green plain, staring up at the sky where a skein of birds is flying and lying in the tall grass listening to the insects, Granddad teaches him how to explore the world, and to love it. His big feet are his passport. Then, "It's your turn to run," says Granddad, leaving as quickly as he came. Rayner's text is minimal and poetic; her watercolors are both beautiful and quirky, with warm colors and offbeat perspectives that emphasize Harris's prodigious feet. A lovely lesson delivered with a deft touch. (Picture book. 3-6)
