Review: Happy Hoppy Home

Happy Hoppy Home is the story of a family of hares, called the Cottontails.

Their home is a small and crowded one.

There rarely seems to be enough room for the youngsters to play games, or practice ballet in the burrow.

And it's far too noisy for naps.

So what do you do when your burrow is too small? You find a bigger one.

However, Papa Hare and his family find that their new house doesn't quite feel like home.

Perhaps there is another way for them to make the perfect Happy Hoppy Home.

Author and illustrator Tull Suwannakit has created an appealing and relatable story with beautiful, soft and muted pastel illustrations. There's also a quirky comfort in the characters.

Readers can follow the characters by tracing their path through the burrows and tunnels. And see who else they can discover living in the maze of underground burrows. Hint: there are foxes, snakes, moles, and other creatures.

A tale about loving your family and your home, Happy Hoppy Home will be enjoyed by adults and children alike.
