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.

From the illustrator of the multiple award-winning The Tale of Despereaux, comes the endearing tale of Hamilton Squidlegger – a boisterous youngster with a huge fear of the dark. During the day Hamilton is fearless! He can triumph over all the frackensnappers, skelecragons and bracklesneeds in the swamp. But at night? Well, he quakes in terror... Will his dad be able to help him remain fearless in his own mud all night long? The perfect bedtime read, this terrific dad-and-son adventure tale involving monsters, seafaring and wormcake is brought to life by Timothy Basil Ering's colourful, energetic signature artwork and hugely imaginative language.

  • Page-turning story about a normally boisterous youngster with a fear of being alone in the dark... until a magical quest results in a good night's sleep all round.
  • Extraordinary artwork brilliantly evokes the wonderfully nonsensical setting.
