Hamish and Mirren live in a quiet farmhouse by a beautiful loch in Scotland. Quiet, that is, except for the talking sea urchin, singing sand, hungry fairies, sad bogle and grumpy witch!

This delightful collection of fun stories is a true children's classic. Moira Miller's characteristic wit and humor shine through, and Mairi Hedderwick's funny, charming illustrations bring gentle Hamish and his wife Mirren wonderfully to life for younger readers anywhere in the world.

Perfect as a read-aloud and also as a nice chapter book for younger readers anywhere and everywhere, especially those needing shorter chapters to read on their own. A great introduction to some Scottish culture and folklore for children who do not live there!
