A delightful collection of stories about friendship from the award-winning former Children's Laureate Anne Fine.
Once best friends, always best friends. Nothing can come between Jamie and Angus - a boy and his toy Highland bull. Join them as they tackle a lively play mate, get muddled in a pretend game, and discover that playing isn't fun unless they are doing it together.
These heartwarming stories for young readers are filled with playful adventures and lessons in just how wonderful friends can be. They are brought to life with enchanting black and white illustrations from the celebrated author-illustrator Sam Usher.
