The Almost Fearless Hamilton Squidlegger

By Timothy Basil Ering
Illustrated by Timothy Basil Ering

An endearing tale of a boy overcoming his bedtime fears with a little help from Dad – and the promise of wormcake in the morning.

Hamilton Squidlegger is fearless! Well, almost. During the day he can triumph over all the frackensnappers, skelecragons and bracklesneeds in the swamp – but at night he quakes in terror. Will his father be able to help Hamilton remain fearless in his own mud all night? Timothy Basil Ering brings his signature energetic touch to this sweet and exuberantly colourful story of father and son.

  • Brilliant, true-to-life story about a normally boisterous youngster whose fear of being alone in the dark sends his parents on a quest for the magical approach that will result in a great night s sleep for all concerned.
  • Extraordinary fantastical artwork and a winning text, set once again in a nonsensical invented environment.
  • Hamilton is a hero for all seasons; he conquers his fears in a way that all children will aspire to emulate.
