Hamish Takes the Train
author/illustrator: Daisy Hirst
Hamish the bear and Noreen the goose live in the country, where they like to watch the trains whoosh by. While Noreen is happy to stay in the country, Hamish can’t help but wonder what it would be like to ride the train into the city. So one day he says goodbye to Noreen and sets off along the tracks. Hamish’s ride on the train takes him to new places, where he meets new friends and even gets a job on a construction site. Before long, though, Hamish realizes how much he misses his home and Noreen. From Daisy Hirst, the award-winning author-illustrator of The Girl with a Parrot on Her Head, here is a warm and friendly story about finding adventure and then finding your way home again.
Trains, cranes, good friends—with warmth and whimsy, Daisy Hirst follows an adventurous bear and a home-loving goose who discover that new experiences are even better shared.
