Love it to the moon and back: Read our review of Will You Be My Friend? by Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram

Synopsis

The first new Guess How Much I Love You picture-book story for 24 years! One day Big Nutbrown Hare is busy, but Little Nutbrown Hare wants to play so he goes off exploring on his own. He discovers another hare in a puddle - then realizes it's his reflection. He spots his shadow and wants to race it - only to find it's just as fast as him. Then up on Cloudy Mountain he finally finds someone to play with: a little snow white hare called Tipps. And she's real! This lovely new story is a wonderful companion to the classic picture-book Guess How Much I Love You; a charming tale about friendship with a delightful and original twist.
