Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
McBratney returns with four stories starring Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare from the bestselling Guess How Much I Love You and its spin­offs. The tales are illustrated by Wagner and Tarbett in the style Anita Jeram used in earlier books, and are similarly straightforward and comforting. As adventures go, these are mild, though each shows the hares' personalities or relationship developing in subtle ways. The hares play hide-and-seek in the first story, in which Little gains confidence to overcome a minor fear. The possibility of danger in the hares' idyllic home pops up in the second and third stories, which show Little coming to realize that Big has his best interests in mind and beginning to learn how to watch out for himself and make smart decisions. The final tale has Little Nutbrown Hare keeping Big guessing about what his favorite place is and delighting in being able to stump the older hare. 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. Ages 3–up. (Aug.)
From the Publisher
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.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Kirkus Reviews
Little Nutbrown Hare bravely ventures out to the Far Field and back in four sweet new outings illustrated "in the style of" Anita Jeram. With Big Nutbrown Hare still in attendance, Little Nutbrown nerves himself for a bit of climbing after his favorite Hiding Tree falls in a storm. He is also (very) briefly lost in fog on Cloudy Mountain, and he finds an interesting burrow in distant Far Field (but heeds his inner voice's warning that dark holes are dangerous). Finally, he invites Big Nutbrown to guess his favorite place as the two are "wandering home at the end of the day." 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. Most strongly of all, they capture the intimate attachment that lights up all of the Hares' appearances from Guess How Much I Love You (1995) on. Low tufts of wildflowers and other foliage backed by thin washes of pale greens and blues create a properly idyllic natural setting. Despite some unfortunate Americanizations and a picture of flying insects that are confusingly called "daddy-long-legs," this book is still close to sublime. Required reading for all young children taking their first ventures into the wide world beyond immediate parental reach. (Picture book. 2-5)

Meet the Author

"After writing several Nutbrown Hare stories, I thought: what might happen when a little hare begins to explore the space around him? (Think of rivers, mountains, fields and trees!) Will there be fun? Oh yes. Will there be trouble ahead? Could be. For you, here are some of the adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare." — Sam McBratney
