Review:
Jamie is a pre-schooler who loves his precious stuffed Highland bull. Angus is his best friend, sharing in all his games. Angus doesn’t say much, but Jamie understands everything about him - especially his feelings about the impending visit by Bella, an overly rambunctious playmate. All previous visits have been disastrous for Angus, and Jamie is determined to spare his friend the fate of Bella at play.

Fine is one of the few writers who can enter the thinking processes of young children. With the help of Penny Dale’s charming pencil drawings this easy chapter book - a sequel - is a sure-fire, bona fide, pitch-perfect winner.
