Clare Pollard

An eye-opening journey in a pea-green boat, 'Fierce Bad Rabbits' is a fascinating and insightful examination of the stories behind our best-loved childhood stories. Sparkling with wit, magic and nostalgia, it weaves tales from Clare's own childhood, her re-readings as a parent, and fascinating facts and theories about the authors behind the books. Introducing you to new treasures while bringing your childhood favourites to vivid life, it will make you see afresh even stories you've read a hundred times. Host Daniel Hahn.
