A rhyming picture book, the second in the series, about a hare called Hattie – written by bestselling poet Pam Ayres and illustrated by award-winning artist Nicola O'Byrne.
Join Hattie the playful Brown Hare as she leaps from meadow to farm to heath, in this heart-warming tale written in rhyme by the much-loved poet Pam Ayres.
We didn’t always live here, once we had a sunny home,
We came here with centurions, all the way from Rome . . .

From grape green meadows to old-fashioned farms, hares travelled thousands of miles to find a home in the countryside. What do they eat? What's their perfect habitat? Can you tell them apart from rabbits?
Wonderfully illustrated by award-winning artist Nicola O'Byrne, I Am Hattie the Hare is a follow-up to the bestselling I Am Oliver the Otter. Bursting with natural and historical facts interwoven throughout the story, and with an information spread at the end that includes tips on where to spot these gentle animals
