The Jamie and Angus Stories

The Jamie and Angus Stories Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jamie and Angus - an imaginative little boy and his treasured toy bull - spring to life in six delightful stories from Britains Childrens Laureate, Anne Fine - illustrated with warmth and charm by Penny Dale.

The moment Jamie sets eyes on Angus in the toy shop window, with his

Bull becomes Jamies constant companion - through an ill-fated run-in

with the washing machine, Uncle Edwards nighttime jump-training sessions, a stay at the hospital for a stomachache, and three more thoroughly amusing adventures.
