The Blue Hare by Hugh Webster
A children's story aimed at 10 year olds and upwards but enjoyable for readers at any age with an interest in British wildlife.
This is a delightful book, hard-hitting in it’s message and told through a compelling story.
It is a gripping and adventurous tale which is full of perceptive insights. Seen through the eyes of the high moorland creatures, particularly two leverets, Snow and his sister Leap, the story illustrates the harsh reality of moorland management for grouse shooting and the subsequent impact on the environment and wildlife. It is also touches on the concept of ‘Rewilding'.
A timely tale as we hear about the out-of-control fires associated with the burning of moors; and the continued illegal persecution of our wildlife for sport and commercial gain.
