Joanna May, author and illustrator of the book, has kindly offered to donate 1/3 of the sale price of this book to Wiltshire Wildlife Trust

The Hare On The Moon is a beautifully illustrated treasure hunt book, in the style of the the famous 1970s Masquerade treasure hunt book.

This magical book is hard backed with a gold foil and embossed cover, with gold foil borders and embossed flowers and symbols. All the borders and icons are spot varnished. For something even more special, there are 500 signed, limited edition versions which are also available to order here.

This book is bound to become a family treasure, perfect for coffee tables, and will make a very special gift.

In the book, you will embark on a mystical journey, with the hare and the help of the man on the moon, to unlock the star signs and to find the treasures which help to release her. The pages are interspersed with beautiful illustrations helping to guide you. Your mission is to find the clues, identify the required words and find the map coordinates to locate the sacred site. Only the author of this book and her husband know where the important site is, and they enticingly believe it is as likely to be solved by a bright teenager as an Oxford Don.

The prize for the first person to correctly identify the location is a beautiful original Joanna May painting – ‘Three Hares on a Golden Moon’ – depicting the famous three hares with the interlinking ears believed to be an ancient fertility symbol. The prize is in safe keeping and can be viewed at her Gallery in Devizes. It will be awarded to the winner no earlier than two years after the book was first published, near to when the moon is at its fullest on 21.11.21.

The winner's name will be kept on file if the book is solved within this two-year period. If the puzzle hasn’t been solved, then the mystery will continue to run until the first person solves it.

Key details for the standard edition book:

  • Measures 370mm x 246mm
