About the Book

This is an interesting book about a very smart and energetic little hare, and his adventures.

When E-Hare, like any other child, goes to school or plays with his friends, he has to meet certain challenges such as bullying at school and tough homework, while learning invaluable lessons like how to study hard, have fun and so on.

This book is written in a fiction rhyme style. The idea is to help kids learn behavioral techniques at an advanced level.

This book is aimed at helping children overcome difficulties in different situations by using the given knowledge and their common sense. The rational approach I use and the style in which the book is written is a good and positive combination; a recipe for success. I use rhymes in the book in order to easier understand and remember the content.

About the Author

I grew up playing hockey in cold winters and playing football (soccer) in hot, but short summer weather in Siberia. In 1999 I immigrated to Canada. Broad international experience and education, as well as familiarity with different political systems helps me better understand cultural differences.

I started writing poetry in my twenties. What influenced me to start? I do not know. Maybe it was the desire to express myself, maybe to share my point of view and opinions. I am not sure. It just kept coming to my head. While I was a kid I had to learn many subjects at school, including literature.

Our literature teacher, Valentina Sliva, did a fabulous job. She was kind of tough on us: we had to memorize a lot of poems written by the Greatest Russian poets such as Pushkin, Mayakovski, Block, Lermontov, Yesenin and many others.

My mom also always served as a good example for me; she wrote many different funny poems for occasions like birthdays, parties and school meetings.
