A beautifully illustrated supernatural tale for teens and young adults based on folklore

A girl changes into a hare to evade a cruel lover. One in a series of short stories that explore the deeper, darker side of our connection with the natural world, this story is for older children and adults, and is inspired by ancient folk tales and a love of nature. Be ready to feel a little bit of magic, and perhaps a few shivers down the spine.
