Beyond Beyond

Johan, a little hare, wants his mother back. Every day he sends her wistful messages in a bottle. He lives with his father on a cutter on the high seas which his dad believes is the only place they are safe from the powerful Feather King who one night stole away Johan’s mother. One day his father has to leave the boat. While he’s away, Johan receives an emergency call on the radio: the Feather King is around and up to no good. Without missing a beat, Johan heads for the unknown destination hoping that he might find his mother there. His turbulent journey leads this naïve yet intrepid hare into the fantastical realm of the Feather King where other laws hold sway – laws that even its ruler cannot determine.
