Harold Hare

Harold Hare

When a hare has his birthday on March 1st you would expect him to be a little mad. Most of the inhabitants of Leafy Wood would probably agree that Harold lives up to the 'mad March hare' stereotype as he scampers from one topsy-turvy situation to another. Harold, on the other hand, would disagree. Is it that mad to have a house where all the furniture is upside down and the cupboards stocked with jam? Not to Harold. He simply wants to enjoy life and sometimes his over-enthusiasm leads to trouble. A little ingenuity and a little help from his friends – Happy Hedgehog and Dicky Dormouse – usually sees everything put to right before long.
