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.

Review:

'I'd definitely recommend this, whether as a family read or for a primary classroom.' -- Thoughts from the Heartfire blog 'A great story about a park!' -- Juno Magazine, March 2011 'With only a line or two of text on the page and plenty of repetition, this is ideal for beginning readers. O'Byrne's illustrations have the look of pen-and-ink sketches with watercolor... As read-aloud or read-alone, a nice addition to the caring-for-our environment collection.' -- Kirkus Reviews 'A feel-good story ... The illustrations are stunning, colourful, informal with a watercolour effect. ...This is also a great book for reading aloud, which would also encourage imagination and discussion.' -- The School Librarian
