The Jamie and Angus Stories (Paperback)
"Sentimental in only the right ways. . . .A perfectly charming collection." THE HORN BOOK (starred review)
The moment Jamie sets eyes on Angus in the toy shop, with his silky coat and forlorn gaze, he knows they belong together. On Christmas morning, the two are united at last, and the coveted Highland bull becomes Jamie's constant companion through an ill-fated run-in with the washing machine, Uncle Edward's jump-training sessions, a stay at the hospital, and three more amusing adventures from Britain's Children's Laureate.
