Will You Be My Friend?
Little Nutbrown Hare wants to play but Big Nutbrown Hare is busy. Little Nutbrown Hare asks if he can go exploring. She says he can. He finds a puddle and sees a hare in it, but it is just himself. He sees his shadow and tries to race it, but it is just himself. He finds his way to Cloudy Mountain, and there he meets someone, someone who is real! It’s a Cloudy Mountain Hare named Tipps. The two of them chase around in the heather. They dig a hole and build a pile and have a great time together. They race up Cloudy Mountain and decide to play Hide and Seek, but they forget to clearly communicate something very important about the game.
