Hare & Kunekune’s Moonlight Mission
by Laura Shallcrass (text and illustrations)
Another title in what is becoming a series about a hare and a pig – unlikely friends in real life, but acceptable in picture books.
As is usual in the genre, there’s a single, somewhat slim storyline – food is disappearing. Peaches and karaka berries from the trees, strawberries, and more. Where is it going?
The pair see themselves of defenders of the food – ironic when you consider it, so perhaps the motivation’s more selfish.
It is Ruru – as always it’s the owl who embodies wisdom – who helps them come to a broader view.
