Happy Hoppy Home

Happy Hoppy Home by Tull Suwannakit (Scholastic) HB RRP $19.99 ISBN 9781742999937

Reviewed by Wendy Haynes

Papa Hare wants what is best for his family and when his four children being to complain about their crowded burrow, he finds a solution. ‘We’ve moving!’ This story follows a family of Hares as they go in search of their new and bigger home. The whole family is excited as Papa Hare leads the way with some interesting twists and turns along the way. Before long they find what seems to be the prefect home. But is it?

This is a calm, quiet book, perfect for bedtime with emotive illustrations, some in vignette, adding that extra layer of storytelling in soft earthy tones. It explores family and how different each and every one of us are. And how sometimes change isn’t what you expect it to be. It reflects a close knit growing family and their journey to realising what they really want – a cosy happy family.

This is a heart-warming story for ages 3+ about the delights of family and togetherness and is a touching tribute to single fathers.
