Will You Be My Friend?

“Will You Be My Friend? will be a classic in children’s literature that reminds us how beautiful friendship is. You will fall in love with the story and illustrations. Bravo!” – Momma Braga


Little Nutbrown Hare sets off exploring on his own. Off he hops along the path and through the grass until he reaches Cloudy Mountain, where something extraordinary happens: he discovers a new friend. This gentle story of burgeoning independence and first friendship will resonate with readers of all ages. Told with the sweetness and simplicity that are the hallmark of Sam McBratney’s writing, and illustrated in Anita Jeram’s signature style, the book is destined to become another beloved family read-aloud.


Will You Be My Friend? tugged at my little rabbit heart as we love rabbits as the main characters! In this children’s story, we go along with Little Nutbrown Hare exploring until he finally makes a friend. The friendship and bond that they develop in the story is heartfelt and pure. We just loved how it was articulated so beautifully in the story.

We have to also mention that the illustrations are breathtaking in the most classic way. It truly made the story feel complete and we know this story will become another classic in children’s literature.

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give it 10 rabbits out of 5! This book is perfect for children ages three to seven and those who love a story about friendship.
