Hattie

By Frida Nilsson
Illustrated by Stina Wirsén

A funny, lively, sympathetic illustrated chapter book about a street-smart country girl in her first year of school, from internationally award-winning Frida Nilsson.

Hattie is a street-smart country girl in her first year of school. She lives just outside of nowhere, right next to no one at all. Luckily she’s starting school and that brings new adventures. Hattie gets her first swimming badge, falls madly in love with a hermit crab and meets a best friend. Sometimes things go wrong—like when the hairdresser cuts her hair into stumps just in time for school photos. Or when she happens to accidentally say in class that her new neighbour has three white horses she can ride on. Hattie is a funny, lively and sympathetic chapter book, perfect for reading aloud and for newly independent readers—from Frida Nilsson, whose award-winning Ice Sea Pirates was an international bestseller.
