But everything starts to change when Tapir stops trying to write, and instead he begins to draw... An uplifting and inspiring story about friendship and finding your feet, with the reassuring message that we are all unique and all good at something.

A charming picture book with a reassuring message about friends overcoming problems together
Hamish is a Highland cow and VERY hairy. He hates having baths and NEVER cuts his hair. Why should he when his shaggy coat is the perfect place to keep his favourite sweet - toffees! But one day his friends get fed up with the increasingly smelly Hamish, and they hatch a plan that involves a hairdresser and, yes, toffees! An exuberant story with bold, bright illustrations from a very talented artist. '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.' Scottish Sunday Herald
