About the Author
Sam McBratney, author of more than one hundred books and scripts, is best known for this bestselling family classic Guess How Much I Love You and has won the Bass Ireland Arts Prize and the Bisto Award, twice. He is also the author of the bestselling You're All My Favourites (9780744586602). He and his wife live in the beautiful countryside of Country Antrim in Northern Island, where they are constantly visited by their many grandchildren. Anita Jeram says that illustrating this title was a labour of love. "Every time I read this book, I want to cry," she says. Anita is also the illustrator of many other popular and critically acclaimed picture books, including Don't You Feel Well, Sam? and You Can Do It, Sam by Amy Hest, and All Pigs Are Beautiful by Dick King-Smith. She lives in Northern Ireland with her family and a menagerie of pets.
"There's not a wrong notein this tender tale.... Right up there with Goodnight Moon."
PreS-Gr 1-McBratney continues to mine and model the positive parent/child communication that he presented so successfully in Guess How Much I Love You (Candlewick, 1995). In four brief stories, he describes Little Nutbrown Hare's feelings and behavior as he explores the forest and fields. In the first tale, his favorite Hiding Tree has fallen during a storm. At first formidable in its new position, the tree proves irresistible during a game of hide-and-seek, and the youngster summons the courage to climb. A touch of anxiety surfaces again on Cloudy Mountain when not having heeded Big Nutbrown Hare's warning, he loses his bearings in the mist. Luckily Big Nutbrown Hare is nearby and doesn't contradict the small rabbit who exclaims, "You nearly got lost!" In the third story, the youngster is tempted to disobey but ultimately finds his inner voice as he recalls Big Nutbrown Hare's admonitions. The final chapter features a guessing game with a loving bedtime exchange. In each episode, the adult maintains the tricky balance between offering protection and freedom; the child starts to develop a sense of when it is appropriate to take risks as he remembers the consequences of previous decisions. The familiar halcyon watercolor-and-ink scenes, this time executed by Wagner and Tarbett "in the style of Anita Jeram," provide a good match for the gentle humor that pervades the dialogue. With a larger trim size and bright, white backgrounds, this book is sure to attract new fans to the popular series.-Wendy Lukehart, Washington DC Public Library (c) Copyright 2012.
