About the Author
Praise For The Adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare…
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)
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.
