Perfect: Little Hare Books


On a perfect day, the hours stretch endlessly ahead. Scribbling with chalk, running with kites, digging for shells ... paddling, climbing, dreaming. Hour unfolds upon hour, with reassuring comfort
and sleep beckoning at the end.
CBCA shortlisted author, Danny Parker captures the simplicity, spontaneity and freedom of an idyllic childhood. Kate Greenaway and multiple CBCA winner Freya Blackwood’s paintings of three
children roaming a rolling beachside idyll capture the light—and even the smell and feel—of a perfect summer day.
Perfect is balm for the soul.
