Illustrated by Nicola O'Byrne

Part of the Picture Kelpies series


Hamish is worried about the heron in the park. It always looks sad and grumpy, with its hunched-up shoulders and long frowning eyebrows.

So Hamish decides to cheer it up: first he brings bread crusts and biscuit crumbs to the park.

But the heron still looks grumpy. Next he brings his family to tidy up the heron's polluted pond.

But the heron still looks grumpy. Then he brings his class to plant flowers around the pond.

But the heron still looks grumpy. Finally he brings everyone he knows to have a party for the heron.

But the heron still looks grumpy. Hamish looks at the heron and wonders: maybe the heron isn't unhappy after all?Each page of this delightful story from popular children's author and storyteller, Lari Don, is brought to life with vibrant illustrations.

Colour and activity build up as the book progresses and the drab inner-city park is brought to life.
