Beautifully illustrated, this is a magical story celebrating the survival of the Golden Hares and especially the protection of their queen. Growing up in the country, the boy knows that he and his family are special and different. While those around them hunt the Golden Hares, they protect them and listen to their song. But can the boy keep the Golden Hares safe when others are so determined to attack them? Jackie Morris vividly brings alive this wonder of nature and the struggle to keep a very special creature alive.
Song of the Golden Hare by Jackie Morris
He loved hares for their twilight dancing wildness, the light in their amber eyes, their long velvet ears, their speed. He loved music for the way it made his heart dance inside him.
He had been waiting all his life, hoping to hear the hare's song...The boy and his family are special. While others hunt the hares, his family search for leverets orphaned by the hunt and keep them safe. But this isn't why they are special. It is because they hold the secret of the song of the golden hare. When the hares begin to move across the land the boy and his sister know that their greatest challenge has begun. They must follow and watch and wait until the time comes for the old queen to leave and her child to reign in her place. But others are searching for the golden queen of the hares, a hunter with two hounds, one silver, one black. Can two children, on their own, keep the golden queen safe from the man and his hounds?
