The cover of 'Jamie and Angus' - the new edition

Jamie pressed his nose up hard against the shop window and gazed at Angus. Angus gazed at him.

"Oh please," said Jamie, "Please."

From the moment Jamie sets eyes on Angus in the shop window, with his silky white coat and forlorn stare, he just knows that they belong together. On Christmas morning, they're finally united and soon the toy Highland bull is Jamie's constant companion. Jamie and Angus. Angus and Jamie.

Children will love to read about their funny adventures in these six enchanting and humorous stories by the second Children's Laureate.

Publishers' Weekly

The Horn Book

"Fresh and funny"

The Times

"A Platonic ideal of the kind of book beginner readers need."
