    4. What I hated about this book aside from the storyline being pretty lame and uncreative was that at the end, the only legitimate fear Hare being afraid that something terrible happened to his friends was laughed off as being ridiculous Don t be silly, Hare We ll always be here So apparently it s completely reasonable to be scared of ghosts in the dark, but when it looks like there s a true danger we should pretend it could never happen.


    5. Nog een keertje voorgelezen aan mijn slapeloze ik heb een enge droom dochter Wie krijgt er ook steeds een krop in de keel bij de slotwoorden van haas en is ook zo DOL op het bevrijdende slot als je begrijpt wat ik bedoel
