Overview

Horace and the Haggis Hunter by Sally Magnusson, Norman Stone

Horace the Haggis, homeless and hunted, finds refuge among the animals of Acre Valley. But Angus McPhee, chief of the haggis-hunters, and his deadly cat are out to trap him. Can a flower-eating fox, a loyal mouse, a gossipy rook, two magpies on Twitter, and the bumbling efforts of the Mole Patrol help Horace escape before he is caught in a net and boiled for dinner? With his bagpipes (which, to the alarm of his new friends, he has just begun learning), his trusty hair-gel, and his fondness for eating heather, Horace will find a place in any child's heart. Friendly, timid, a little bit greedy, and ever so slightly vain, he spends much of the Battle of Nettle Farm with his eyes tight shut, as he and his friends try to escape the clutches of Angus McPhee and The Cat With No Name. "Horace the Haggis" gives children a world of fun, adventure, secrets, and unforgettable characters and is both comfortingly timeless and engagingly modern. And in Acre Valley the exploits of Horace and his friends will have you laughing one minute and on the edge of your seat the next. Illustrated by the author's husband and based on ideas from their own children, this is a family book for other families to read together and enjoy.
