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. The gorgeous and highly imaginative watercolours illustrate how Harris not only learns about the world around him but also discovers the importance of finding his own feet.


From the author and illustrator of Augustus and His Smile, winner of one of Child's Magazine's Best Children's Book Awards.
