This was interesting to me, because it stands outside the usual children's publishing genres. It looks like an early chapter book, but in content and tone is closer to a picture book and more suitable for a pre-reading pre-school audience. A good possibility for a child who likes longer picture books and is ready to listen for longer than an average picture book takes to read. I wonder if this book has found its ideal audience?
Oh my goodness, I loved this book. It's cozy and sweet and warm, both the stories and illustrations. And it's so British, I can't even. Reading this book is like wrapping yourself in a warm, well-worn blanket. Heaven.

Jamie is a sweet, endearing little boy and Angus is his faithful Highland Bull stuffed friend. Jamie's parents and Uncle Edward are loving, sweet, and fun, perfectly paired with our little hero.

Humorous and full of heart, these stories Jamie and his constant companion Angus will ple
I've read only chapter one so far, and I'm impressed with the writing and the message. Here is a child who waits patiently for a gift he picked out months before Christmas. In the interim he paints, cuts, and glues paper towel tubes, fabric scraps, and popsicle sticks into a farm for his new toy. Hmm, guess I need to get a sewing basket if I dream of E and W crafting this way instead of buying the Fisher Price farm... ;)

Now that I've finished, I'm not as smitten, but still think it's pretty good
It's rare to find such an utterly sweet book that at the same time gets totally into the head of a preschooler. This is actually a chapter book with black and white illustrations wonderfully conveying the personality of Jamie and (even more amazingly) his plushie Highland bull and best friend, Angus. Jamie's mom, dad, grandma and uncle come across as well-rounded characters, and Fine is expert at making Jamie and Angus' adventures compelling while still being realistic.

Though readers often find themselves inadvertently laughing aloud as they read Anne Fine's novels, as she herself admits, "a lot of my work, even for fairly young readers, raises serious social issues. Growing up is a long and confusing business. I try to show that the battle through the chaos is worthwhile and can, at times, be seen as very funny." In 1994, this unique combination of humour and r ...more
