Cloth Ears and the Circus

My first illustrated picture book.  A story about learning to live with yourself, making the best of every situation  being a success.

The main character is a young hare who is named, cloth ears by his mother, after she makes him a beautiful pair of cloth ears.

Looking forward to seeing this work develop into print….. and hopefully be the start of a series.
