Mirle loves to listen to her dad's bedtime stories. Once upon a time, he says, everyone was green, squirrels sang in choirs, tiny people lived in Aunt Elsie's potplant and of course, hares could fly . . . but can all this really be true? Mirle thinks her dad's just being silly as usual, but no-one's bedtime stories are as good as his. So cuddle up on the sofa and pick one of these fourteen fantastically funny stories to read together before bed. Which one will be your favourite?This brilliant collection of short stories is cleverly translated by David Henry Wilson, author of the Jeremy James series, and is brought to life by the warm, witty and richly detailed pictures by Axel Scheffler, illustrator of The Gruffalo.With a jacket, extra-thick paper, and a special ribbon to mark your place in the book, When Hares Could Fly makes a great present - truly a book to treasure.
