Publication Date: July 22, 2002
Jamie and Angus - an imaginative little boy and his treasured toy bull - spring to life in six delightful stories from Britain’s Children’s 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
silky white coat and forlorn gaze, he just 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 nighttime jump-training sessions, a stay at the hospital for a stomachache, and three more thoroughly amusing adventures.
