Dan Lyons weaves a delightful children's tale inspired by the real world Tinners Hare signs which can be found in many ancient buildings throughout the countryside. The mythical sign is often carved into ceilings or walls and is thought to have been brought to Europe from the East via the Silk Road.

Told through the eyes of Gagarin, who is the youngest member of a hare family who are all patiently waiting for the moon to be 'ready', the story slowly builds to reveal the magic moment of the Tinners Hare dance. Fiona Rose has illustrated the tale to beautifully capture and communicate the lives of the hares as their mysterious and surprising lives unfold
