Did you ever wonder what happened after the Tortoise beat the Hare in a race?
Young Hare loves running – there's nothing like it! But when he’s beaten by the slow Tortoise, he feels embarrassed and can’t stop worrying. What can he do?
He turns to Mother Hare for help and she gives him the strangest advice – she tells him to go and meet the Moon . . .
Written and illustrated by therapist and artist Sophie Shaw, The Hare and the Moon is a magical fable about learning to overcome your fears.
