The Almost Fearless Hamilton SquidleggerBook - 2014
This is an endearing tale of a boy overcoming his bedtime fears with a little help from Dad - and the promise of wormcake in the morning. Hamilton Squidlegger is fearless! Well, almost. During the day he can triumph over all the frackensnappers, skelecragons and bracklesneeds in the swamp - but at night he quakes in terror. Will his father be able to help Hamilton remain fearless in his own mud all night? Timothy Basil Ering brings his signature energetic touch to this sweet and exuberantly colourful story of father and son. This is a page-turning story about a normally boisterous youngster with a fear of being alone in the dark...until a magical quest results in a good night's sleep all round. Extraordinary artwork provides a fantastical backdrop for a winning text set in a nonsensical invented environment. This is a terrific dad-and-son adventure tale, involving monsters, seafaring and wormcake! It is brilliant for reading aloud at bedtime when the sun slips down behind the scrintalberry trees...
