Praise

Existential Hare’s sweet character engages readers from the get-go: he sits and looks out at the world with his big feet splayed out in front of him, and his ears stream behind him when he runs. Collage, scribbly lines, and splashes of paint bring a wealth of texture and color to the spreads. Though the sentiments are predictable, the absence of conflict and the warmth shared by Horác?ek’s (The Last Tiger) animal gang offer a bright, upbeat affirmation of all that community offers.
—Publishers Weekly

Horác?ek’s glorious art makes everything within it the best place; rough, luminous paint, soft colored pencil, and layered collage elements create a verdant, resplendent world, while there’s a folksy John Burningham touch to Hare’s comfortable bipedal poses. It’s sufficiently enticing that viewers may think Hare had a pretty easy decision, and they may also consider their own best places.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
