Hamish Takes the Train (Paperback)

£6.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

A touching tale about friendship and adventure featuring trains, cranes, a bear and a goose - the perfect bedtime story.



Hamish the bear and Noreen the goose lead a very good life in the country. They love to spend long days together, watching the trains whoosh past. But Hamish has always wondered what lies at the other end of the train tracks.



And so begins Hamish's adventure as he journeys to the city to explore new places, makes new friends and even gets himself a job on a building site. But ultimately, Hamish realizes how much he misses his home and his good friend, Noreen.



Hamish Takes the Train is a gorgeous, quirky story from rising star Daisy Hirst, who has been shortlisted for an AOI World Illustration Award and whose first picture book, The Girl With a Parrot on Her Head, was an Honor Book in the prestigious Ezra Jack Keats Awards. Daisy's artwork is expressive and beautifully textured, full of wry humour and real heart.



This richly layered story is perfect for reading out loud or for children who have just learned to read.

Daisy Hirst is from London and lives in Cambridge. She has wanted to write and illustrate picture books since before she could write. She studied English and Creative Writing at the University of Warwick, but never stopped reading picture books or doodling, and went on to study Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art, completing her MA in 2013. Daisy is the author and illustrator of several books including The Girl with the Parrot on Her Head, Hilda and the Runaway Baby, Alphonse, That Is Not OK to Do! (featured on CBeebies Bedtime Stories), Hamish Takes the Train and I Do Not Like Books Anymore!, which has been shortlisted for an AOI World Illustration Award. Her debut, The Girl with the Parrot on Her Head, was an Honor Book in the prestigious Ezra Jack Keats Book Award in the US and shortlisted for the Klaus Flugge Prize. An early version of Hilda and the Runaway Baby won the Lara Jones Award in the 2012 Macmillan Prize. Daisy also makes prints, comics and greetings cards, runs children's and adults' workshops and once built a sailing boat called Loris.
