    Hare and Ruru A Quiet Moment
    This is the story of Hare, who struggles with an un-named mental malady self described as 'noise'. Noise could be runaway thoughts, voices in Hare's head, or loud feelings and general anxiety. Hare goes on a journey to try and find a solution. Just when Hare thinks there's no hope a friend, Ruru, flies calmly down and gives a suggestion.
    Hare ultimately feels better after doing three things:
    * Talking to someone
    * Focusing on breathing
    * Connecting to nature
    This gentle story is for anybody who suffers from noises, anxiety or loud feelings

Something has a powerful hold over the town. With Zia determined to find out more, Miro finds himself putting aside his books for a real adventure.
