Home Sweet Hamish by Natalie Russell

Hamish is larger than life - and just a little bit clumsy and a tiny bit messy. Hamish is clumsy just once too often and his animal friends banish him from their house. But it is cold and snowy oustside and soon the animals start to feel guilty. So they come up with a perfect plan to make Hamish feel very welcome indeed. A charming picture book with a reassuring message about friends overcoming problems together


'This simple and cheerful story is told with bright, bold illustrations making it suitable for all ages'

- praise for 'Hamish the Highland Cow

'Russell's bright-eyed cast, including sheep with coloured rinses, is full of character and her text is deftly delivered - it's a gift to read aloud'

- praise for 'Hamish the Highland Cow'
