Will You Be My Friend? By Sam McBratney in hardback £12.99 (for ages 0-5)

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!
