I'm a Hare, So There! Book Review

     My friend Julie Rowan-Zoch is an extremely talented illustrator. Check out her work in Louis by Tom Lichtenheld! 


     I had seen a bit of the idea for her author/illustrator debut, but was blown away by the final product.

Do you like picture book characters with attitude? Check! Do you like to learn a little bit about desert creatures? Check! Do you wonder if some animals that look alike are as similar as they appear? Check!

Julie's illustrations convey emotions with simplicity and style. For those of you who have a "no violence" policy, note that there is a Roadrunner/Coyote type moment (an old cartoon to check out for those of you who aren't old enough to know the reference!) of comedic violence near the end to save Hare and Squirrel's lives. For me, it's two thumbs up for I'M A HARE, SO THERE. 


Note: I learned that Google Blogger is no longer supporting Feedburner subscriptions as of July, so I may have to migrate my blog elsewhere. It's disappointing that tech companies do this. I'll try to give everyone a heads up as I figure this out.

  1. Thank you, Wendy! In HARE’s defense, pun intended, they do like to throw one now and again! The male desert hares and the female English hares, to the best of my knowledge! The Wild Kingdom (for those of us in the know) in picture books! Sorry to hear you’ll need to move your blog, but I hope it all goes smoothly for you!

  4. The title looks kinda cool. I have been trying to find a book that I could gift to my younger cousin on his birthday. I remember, last year I spent an hour at the bookstore searching for a book to buy for his birthday. But now I don’t even have time to search online – that’s how busy I am. I guess anyone who provides dissertation help London is this busy.
