A beautiful read-aloud story book for all ages featuring 11½ goodnight stories from friends fox and hare who help each other get to sleep.

Fox and Rabbit live quite far away, in a bright little house beyond the mole hills. If they can’t sleep, they count the good nights (335 in total). When they wish each other a good night, the rustling pear tree, the raspberries and the stars join in. Sometimes they swing on the lightshades. These heart-warming stories of friendship, fun and life in the country have everything it takes to become family favourites.
