NZ Author/illustrator, Laura Shallcrass
HARDCOVER: 32 pages
SIZE: 205 mm x 290 mm
This is the story of Hare, who struggles with an un-named mental malady self described as ‘noise’. Noise could be runaway thoughts, voices in Hare’s head, or loud feelings and general anxiety. Hare goes on a journey to try and find a solution. Just when Hare thinks there’s no hope a friend, Ruru, flies calmly down and gives a suggestion.
Hare ultimately feels better after doing three things:
• Talking to someone
• Focusing on breathing
• Connecting to nature
This gentle story is especially special for young ones who suffers from noises, anxiety or loud feelings.
