Ruby Red Shoes is the much loved aware hare who stars in a series of best-selling children’s books by illustrator and author Kate Knapp.

The Ruby Red Shoes books have been published around the world and have grown a devoted following amongst children and adults alike. 

Being an aware hare means cultivating awareness of the world around you as well as inside you — awareness and care of self, the community and our precious earth. These important messages are delivered gently through detailed illustrations and charming stories.
