Hamish Takes the Train

We rated this book:


Have you ever wondered what the other side of town is like? Of course, you have!

In this medium length picture book, Hamish struggles with the decision of leaving his friend to satisfy his curiosity. Hamish has always wondered where the local train goes, but his best friend Noreen doesn’t seem to have the same desire. After a short argument, Hamish decides to go on his own. Everywhere Hamish goes, he is reminded of Noreen, but when he meets a stranger that needs his help, Hamish can’t resist.

I was surprised with how detailed the illustrations were for a children’s book. They really helped me understand and enjoy the story. Daisy Hirst probably intended this book for six to ten-year-old children, but I absolutely loved it at twelve years of age.

Will Hamish ever leave the glamourous city to go home to Noreen? To find out the answer, you will just have to read the book.
