Harris was a very small hare with very big feet. “Why do I have such enormous feet, Grandad?” he sighed. “All hares have big feet, young Harris,” said Grandad.
And so begins a beautiful and remarkable story about a child’s journey to independence. With help from his grandfather, Harris learns how to use his enormous feet to hop high into the sky. He climbs to the tops of mountains and runs really fast until suddenly he is on his own.
Gorgeous and highly imaginative watercolors illustrate how Harris not only learns about the world around him, but also discovers the importance of finding his own feet.

In his swampy home, Solomon is looking for fun but nobody wants to play. The dragonflies tell him to buzz off, the storks get in a flap, and the hippo is downright huffy. But then somebody else starts making a ruckus…and for once it is NOT Solomon. Could it be the perfect pal for a lonely croc? Matching vibrant art with rollicking words, Scottish artist Catherine Rayner has created a funny, reassuring story about a rambunctious youngster who chases off the friends he’s trying to make.
Ernest is a rather large moose with a rather large problem. He is so big he can’t fit inside his book! Luckily, Ernest is also a very determined moose, and he and his little chipmunk friend aren’t going to give up easily. With some tape, odd bits of paper, and plenty of enthusiasm, the pair constructs an enormous gatefold page by themselves, and everything fits together in the end.
Augustus the tiger was sad. He had lost his smile. So he did a huge tigery stretch, and set off to find it.
