The Best Place in the World

By Petr Horacek
Illustrated by Petr Horacek

A heart-warming picture book following an inquisitive hare as he discovers that the best place in the world is always with the people you love.

"Do you think this is the best place in the world?" Hare asks his friends, Rabbit, Bear, Duck and Owl. Certain there must be somewhere better out there, Hare sets out on an adventure that takes him to mountains higher than the clouds, sun-kissed beaches and starlit deserts. But even the most beautiful place isn't perfect without friends to share it with, and perhaps the best place in the world is actually closer than Hare thinks. With gorgeous artwork in a stunning summer palette, this is a beautiful picture book from the Kate Greenaway Medal-shortlisted illustrator Petr Horacek, who has been described by The Washington Post as "the thinking tot's Eric Carle".
