Description

An adorable baby hare springs into an adventure, following his human friend up, up, and away in this flight of fancy. He follows his friend ever higher, flying through fluffy white clouds, chasing a red airplane through a flock of geese, and soaring into space on a rocket ship, before catching a ride on a shooting star back down to earth—and into his friend’s waiting arms. With bright, kid-friendly collage, this is a beautiful and accessible celebration of Spring and the imagination!

Praise For Spring Hare

Spring Hare:

"Backyard trampoline jumpers sometimes feel as though they can bounce right up into the sky, and that’s just what happens in Yelchin’s wordless fantasy. . . The action ricochets into outer space and back like a magnificent bungee jump, and the girl’s presence offers reassurance throughout." Publishers Weekly, starred review

"a whimsical wordless tale brimming with energy. . . an immersive and buoyant bounce of an adventure." —The Horn Book

"Yelchin’s collage illustrations constantly change perspective and point of view, and he uses energetic, rich tones of yellows, greens, blues, reds, and oranges to communicate movement and buoyancy, which playfully capture the exuberant feelings new friendship, the joy of movement, and the possibilities of imagination." —Booklist

Crybaby:

"Yelchin's mixed-media illustrations are fun and full of life" —School Library Journal
