Book Description

1 April 2008
Harris was a very small being with very big feet. "Why do I have such enormous feet, Grandad?" Harris asked? So Grandad shows Harris how to hop high into the sky, to climb to the tops of the mountains, and to run very fast. This book is the second book from an award-winning author-illustrator.

Product Description

Review

"A second book from a very promising newcomer… In a series of fluid, elegant pictures, Young Harris finds out how to make the most of his lovely big feet. A gentle story in pleasing colours, strongly designed, with just enough menace in the shadow of the wolf cast across the page." --Carousel, July 2008

"Tigers at Edinburgh Zoo provided Catherine Rayner with the inspiration for her award-winning picture book Augustus and His Smile, and in the follow-up the artwork is stunning once again… With its beautiful pictures and inspiring message, this book is perfect for nursery-aged children ready to take their first steps to independence." --Scotland On Sunday, April 2007 --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous 25 April 2008
Following on from the unique and wonderful Augustus and His Smile, Rayner's second book is stunning, clever and beautiful. It has a fine, strong story and bold, special illustrations. An absolutely wonderful picture book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely story 20 Nov 2010
I totally disagree with a previous reviewer who feels this is a rip off of 'Guess How Much I Love You'. We own both and yes, they are both about hares...one younger and one older, but this is really where the similarities end. This book is a touching story about how Harris learns what he can do with his feet and finds his independence. My son has loved it since we started reading it to him at 6 months. The pictures are stunning. I would highly recommend this book.

By ELH Browning VINE VOICE
This is a lovely book, a simple story with a fresh open feel that reminds me of the classic "Guess how much I love you" story by McBratney and Jeram, is every bit as heart-warming and deserves the same acclaim. Harris is a young hare, his energetic exuberance bounding from the page in great strong spring-coloured illustrations. With his Grandad Hare, he finds he can use his big feet for bouncing, hopping to the top of the world, and running fast - so fast he leaves Grandad behind. And he's alone then to explore the world as he likes. Yet wherever he goes and whatever he does he can always come back home. Clean, refreshing, and the perfect gift for Easter. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars hang on a minute.... 25 Jun 2009
it seems a bit mean giving a negative review to this very warm and cosy children's book BUT just hold it there for one minute, this is a COMPLETE RIP OFF of 'Guess How Much I Love You' (which, just for the record I've always thought owes rather a lot to 'Can't You Sleep Little Bear'and the other Big and Little Bear books by Martin Waddell and Barbara Firth). Surely originality should be pre-requisite for the Greenaway prize, no? Your money would be much better spent on the Waddell/Firth originals in my opinion.
