Hamish the Highland Cow by Natalie Russell


Hamish the Highland Cow by Natalie Russell

Hamish is a Highland cow and VERY hairy. He hates having baths and NEVER cuts his hair. Why should he when his shaggy coat is the perfect place to keep his favourite sweet - toffees! But one day his friends get fed up with the increasingly smelly Hamish, and they hatch a plan that involves a hairdresser and, yes, toffees! An exuberant story with bold, bright illustrations from a very talented artist. 'Russell's bright-eyed cast, including sheep with coloured rinses, is full of character and her text is deftly delivered - it's a gift to read aloud.' Scottish Sunday Herald

I love Lovereading because of its ability to connect people that love books & unite them in a friendly, stimulating & interesting community.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Love books. Love reading. Love reading books. And, here's the trick. Here's a website which caters for people like me.

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Magda North

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

The selections are so varied and the reader reviews are so helpful. A fantastic website for those who love books.
