This is a magical story of a boy and his family who are the guardians of the Golden Hares, protecting them from the rest of the world while others choose to hunt them.

The boy and his sister watch and follow the hares, and one day they are rewarded by an extraordinary once-in-a-lifetime experience. They witness the competition for the new queen of the Golden Hares, in which each young female must sing to win the crown, and the old queen must then make her perilous last journey to the island of the Golden Hares. When the children hear the hares sing, they are spellbound and their hearts are bound to the hares for ever.

Jackie spent many hours sitting in fields watching hares yawn, stretch, run and leap. During these moments she captured the essence of wild Hares and has transformed their behaviour into this incredible tale. It is an original story that sounds like a folk song. Echoing the Pembrokeshire landscape this book crosses the borders of song and story. It is a picture book for all ages. It is about love, song, courage, patience, rebirth, renewal, hope and trust.

Tell me a Dragon

Written and illustrated by Jackie Morris. This book imagines and describes many different varieties of dragons, showing them in words and stunning illustrations.

The Lost Words

“Once upon a time, words began to vanish from the language of children. They disappeared so quietly that at first almost no one noticed – fading away like water on stone. The words were those that children used to name the natural world around them: acorn, adder, bluebell, bramble, conker – gone! Fern, heather, kingfisher, otter, raven, willow, wren…all of them gone! The words were being lost…” A collaboration between Jackie Morris and Robert Macfarlane, The Lost Words is a very special illustrated collection of spell-poems to re-wild the language of children. All over the country, there are words disappearing from children's lives.

The Ice Bear

A deluxe large-format edition. Written & Illustrated by Jackie Morris, this magical tale set in the polar regions of the Arctic follows the Ice Bear and her cubs through a tale of tolerance and understanding.
